National Theatre Brno
The National Theatre Brno is the longest existing theatre in Brno. Its beginnings date back to the 1880s, when the Cooperative of the Czech National Theatre in Brno was established and the first permanent stage of professional Czech theatre in Brno was opened on Veveří street (1884). As the only permanent professional Czech theatre in Brno, the National Theatre Brno was an important cultural symbol, and its acts have grown ever since.
Currently, the National Theatre Brno has three artistic ensembles - drama, opera and ballet. Their wide repertoire of genres and subjects offers the audience classical as well as modern and contemporary works. The ensembles of the NTB performin three theatre buildings, all of which are cultural monuments witha rich history. The first, the Mahen Theatre, was built in 1881-82 according to the plans of architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer. It was the first fully electrified theatre. Secondly, the Janáček Theatre, which was the biggest and most state-of-the-art theatre in Czechoslovakia at that time. And finally, the Reduta Theatre, which hosts the oldest traditional theatre stage in Brno. Apart from that, the National Theatre Brno is the organizer of two outstanding festivals - the international drama and music festival Janáček Brno and the progressive theatre festival Theatre World Brno.
