Lucky enough to see a show there, Ana Karenina. It was awesome! Zagreb National Theater is just an awesome place. Very acoustic, nicely decorated, worth every cent spent!

If you are an artist or architect you must visit. Simply charming and gorgeous. The outside is a interesting yellow color with a large garden area.

I went to see Ana Karenjina ballet there in late March, and sat in a sold out downstairs seats with my friend. The seats were roomy, and the stage and decorations inside the theatre were amazing. Everything was professional and I was transfixed by the ballet and the dancers and the orchestra performing upfront "under" the stage. The feeling of... More

This remains one of the most charming and magical traditional theaters I have been to. Very classical in layout, and simply beautiful. The Anna Karenina ballet was spectacular, thank you!

I've been to the ballet here twice and also a couple of other performances and every time it was very nice. It's a small theatre but has a lovely ambience, it's beautifully decorated. If something is on that you would like to see - it's a lovely way to spend an evening in Zagreb.

We saw a production of Ana Karenina ballet with music by Tchaikovsky at the theatre which is small, intimate and a splendid building. The performance was amazing.

Lost my opera virginity here experiencing The Bartered Bride and couldn't fault the experience one bit. Superbly-priced - want to find me somewhere else you can get a box-seat for ~£15 ? - stunning baroque interior surpassed only by the gorgeous, softly-imposing silhouette painted by the choice lighting upon the building itself. A real sight for sore eyes and for... More

Beautiful interior. Saw an opera and loved the performance. Seats in stalls are 120 Kuna (12£). Easy online booking system. Unfortunately it was not possible to buy drinks in the interval. Close to city centre and nice coffees around for drinks before or afterwards.
