Good Place for Inexpensive Opera.

Saw Carmen here. I rarely see opera since it is so expensive in the US. While this wasn't the best production of Carmen ever, it was well done, and it was a wonderful... read more

Saw Carmen here. I rarely see opera since it is so expensive in the US. While this wasn't the best production of Carmen ever, it was well done, and it was a wonderful opportunity to see this opera, which I wanted to see for years. Payed the equivalent of about 20 American dollars. I'm giving it five stars because while... More

The Croatian National Theater in Split is so well preserved, inside and outside, that one cannot miss it. Tourists can enjoy operettas, operas, drama and concerts, and many of them really cheap, even the top floors. Last week, I went to see Madame Butterfly and I felt astonished by how well represented it was! Waiting now the chance to go... More

When you visit Split you have a perfect chance to watch the world class opera and ballet for only 10-15 EUR. The theatre is more than 100 years old and very beautiful inside. A time you will surely remember!

The National Theatre is a hidden treasure which for sure - once you see this place from the outside - you wouldn't expect. Beautifully finished this place brings you back in time and being there is a journey you will surely enjoy.

This diverse Theater is everything we expected and more. We have seen 2 different production here and they were both well done and interesting. Learning different cultures and being part of them as we were at this theater speaks volumes. Many non English speaking shows but for what it's worth we didn't even need the English portion...that's how good it... More

From the opera to the plays and shows, as long as you understand Croatia or italian you will be fine, if not just go for the music......

Enough start with - ballet crew is made of bunch of Russians. Of course, it is nothing like, for example, theater in Vienna, Berlin etc., however, lot of Croatian famous actors or opera singers who can now be seen even on West End in London, started right here. It is really professional, polite, but casual dress code required, and building... More

We saw the Hrvatski Narodni Theater (HNT) and it looked very interesting. So we checked the internet and saw that they played Kafkas "The Metamorphosis". The pictures looked like it would be a very physical theatre, so we decided to visit the theatre, even without speaking more than two words of Croatian. From the inside the theatre is also very...

We saw Splitski Akvarel, and it was wonderful. The view of the stage was unparalleled. Look forward to attending again in the future.
