I have been at the theater several times to see ballet and opera. Together with the Cathedral they guard the soul of the historical center of the city. Excellent scheduling and calendar of events.

I paid 10 euros for a top price seat to see Rigoletto and had a box to myself. The theatre was only a quarter full. Word about the totally hilarious and bizarre staging of Verdi's work had clearly got around. But the view of the...More

Over 100 years old but looks older and great for photos. It is just next to the cathedral Saint Elizabeth and proposes a very diverse program changing almost everyday. A gem of Kosice.

We entered in the theater an hour before the premiére of The Traviata - badly dressed as two twenty-something, shoestring travellers in a -5°C December evening may be, asking when it would have been possible to visit the inside of the building. They immediately accompanied...More
