Theatre
The National Dance Theatre is the most important centre for Hungarian dance, founded by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage. It first opened on 1 December 2001 in the buildings of the Carmelite Convent and Church. The National Dance Theatre's primary task is to represent and manage Hungarian dance both within and outside the country's borders. Its goal is to create a home for Hungarian dance and to provide a repertoire which showcases every genre. As a host institution, it collaborates with nearly forty professional Hungarian companies. From folk dancing to classical ballet, from ballroom dancing to contemporary dance and interactive children's performances, it aims to attract dance theatre audiences with a wide range of genres.
The Castle Theatre is the only 18th century theatre building in Hungary which still stages plays. The former Carmelite monastery was emptied on the order of Josef II, and was rebuilt as a theatre and casino based on the plans of Farkas Kempelen.
