I arrived at the theatre early from my studies but had to wait outside till the doors opened at 6.35pm for the 7pm performance. The seats were poorly numbered and I was sent in the wrong direction by one of the attendants and ended up in the wrong place! I was not the only one. The seats are crammed up... More

I grew up in Cluj and I am myself a member of the Hungarian minority. Although I like to go to both to the National Theatre and the Hungarian one too, I believe this latter is extraordinary in the high quality theatrical performances. The actors are good, they work regularly with internationally acclaimed partners (directors, dramaturgs, etc.) and the organization... More

We were so glad to see that Hungarian Theatre and Opera is popular and local people (Hungarians and Romanians) take the opportunity of it well! The piece that we saw was one of the latests before the theatre closes for this season. Ticket was discounted and costed 5 lei (~1 EUR). The performance will always remain unforgetable experience for us.... More

My partner and I went to see the ballet Giselle at the beginning of October 2012. Fortunately, the venue was just over the road from the hotel we were staying at, so it was really easy to find. Whilst I can't comment on the quality of the plays (wouldn't understand them anyway!) the ballet we saw was fantastic. It's an... More

Award-winning plays, famous stage-directors, talented actors... never a disappointment! Enjoy an evening out at the theater/opera, especially if you are planning a longer stay in Cluj-Napoca!

This is a great place to go and is located right across from Central Park. Unfortunately, most of the performances are listed in Hungarian, but you can get a partial English or Romanian translation on their website. They have things like theater, opera, ballet, and even music events (3 jazz performances in 2009-2010)!
