Theaters

When foreign acts visit your local theater, this is hugely attended and most of these are sold out. Especially if the company visiting is known worldwide you are lucky if you get a ticket to see the event. This is because these foreign acts give something new to the audience. They offer a something fresh and events like these are a great way for the local audience to get a glimpse of their culture. If you are visiting a foreign city then this is your chance to see all the foreign acts. You can even choose from the many theaters they have available and choose from all the acts that are to perform.


When you are in Budapest, there are a number of theaters and concert halls that you can choose from. It is good to know about your choices and read up on their upcoming shows so you can plan your schedule during your trip to the city.

The Liszt Academy of Music aside from it being one of the most prestigious music academy in Hungary is also the most prominent concert venue in the city. It was formerly known as the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music. Aside from it being one of the best music schools and concert venues in the city, the façade of the building is also one reason to visit the place. The beautiful structure of the Academy of Music can be found Liszt Ferenc tér and Király utca.

Other theaters that are also worth visiting are: Örkény Színház, which is located in 1075 Budapest Madách tér 6 is known for its formerly cutting edge performances and strong ensemble. They have a company of 17 actors and do about 30 shows in a month; Artus Contemporary Arts Studio, located at 1116 Budapest Sztregova utca 7 also offers regular shows every week. One great thing about the studio is whenever they have an event, you can take the Double Decker and it will take you directly there; and Bárka Szinhaz, which is a small theater in the 8th district, is a company of 16 actors that also offer regular shows. For you convenience, they have offered an online ticketing on their website.
