Brilliant backstage tour
Oct 2021 • Couples
We arrived for a backstage tour from our Danube river cruise, with a small group.

The tour was excellent . We heard stories from one of the theatre managers which gave us an insight into the history of the place as well as some of the many famous performers who have performed here.

We were able to go onto the stage during a rehearsal for the opera being performed that evening and were able to watch some of the rehearsals.

Great to see the wardrobe rooms and hear stories of the challenges the wardrobe people have to face and the amount of work that goes into making the various versions of the costumes for each performance, for leads plus understudies. Incredible amount of work. The staging and scenery was interesting, including the different flooring required for ballets, with sprung floors etc.

The tour ended following a visit to the theatre museum, ( really interesting), with a private operatic performance from 2 of the lead sopranos (4 pieces) whilst we sipped a glass of fizz. Brilliant performances from Biljana Jovanovic, and Isidora Stevanovic. Such brilliant voices at close quarters meant that we felt their full power, which was amazing and emotional a great finale to a great backstage tour. This is a highlight of our entire trip and definitely to be recommended to anyone interested in musical performances and theatre.

Nice classical building

National Theatre is located in Republic Square, the main square of Belgrade, where all people meet each other. It is a classical theatre, which you can see from all parts of the square. Nice a photo with Prince Mihailo Monument.

A nice building, but no tours available.

We wanted to visit the National theater, as the building, located in Republic square sure was beautiful.
Alas, no tours were available during our visit, so we only managed to enjoy the building from the outside.

Great building

Lovely theatre building bordering Republic Square. It is lit up at night and should be seen as part of the main tourist sites in the centre.

We had included the tour of this theatre as part of our river cruise shore excursion. The tour included a visit to the auditorium, a walk on the stage, the dressing rooms and the costume making areas. It was all extremely interesting. After our tour, we went down to the museum floor where we were treated to a recital by two young singers from Belgrade Opera (Marija Jelic and Isidora Stevanovic). They were excellent

Beautiful Building
May 2019 • Solo
According to our Walking Tour Guide, local residents love their theaters. He suggested that we try to see a show here before leaving Belgrade.

I visited the Theater and found it to be closed. Outside is a schedule of their shows that I took note of.

I took photos of its exteriors before leaving.
