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.

Erkel Theatre, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review

  • Went there for the opera "Figaro". An Hungarian take of "Marriage of Figaro". Thanks God for subtitles. Nice theatre.

  • Theater for the people. Beautiful old theater, even the worst seats have a good view. The acoustics are excellent. The staff running the theater are polite and efficient. The metro is a few steps away in the same park. Lovely opportunity to dress up for the evening. The concessions were good, but the queue was crazy long.

  • It's a big theatre, member of the Hungarian State Opera. All the big events from the Opera are also shown here. The shows are high quality events. The building is a few years ago renewd and is now fully modern.

  • Best place to see contemporary ballet at an unbeatable price, it's best to book online way before the show to choose your seat.

  • Now when the big Opera is closed for renovation the Erkel is the Mekka for opera lovers.
