Erkel Theatre was initially known as Nepopera as it was built by the Nepopera corporation. In return for the free venue, they took over the control of the regulation of the theatre. The idea of making this theatre was basically to bring Opera to the masses by making it reasonable. It was one of the very first Hungarian operas to come into picture as most of the plays were only in the Hungarian language. Eventually in the years to come, it associated with the State Opera House. With various changes and renovations, today Erkel Theatre acts as the secondary stage to the State Opera House.

  • Good acoustics, nice interior. A lot newer than I expected. I saw Billy Elliot from the balcony. Good prices. Great production. Be sure you look into the Hungarian Clap before attending so you know what to expect. They don’t do standing ovations but the “Hungarian Clap” should be experienced by every tourist at least once. :)

  • Amazing performance, awesome light effects, lyrics shown in Hungarian and English translation. Erika Miklósa mesmerized her audience!

  • The productions are always high quality, the buffet is relatively small compered to the huge audience, but the bathrooms and cloackrooms are fine. They always forget to clean the boxes...

  • Lovely theatre with good show. Somewhat formal and most people dress up to attend.

  • Great place. Great performances. :)
