Slovak National Theatre - logoFounded in 1920, the Slovak National Theatre became a state-run company in 1945. Today it comprises three ensembles - drama, opera and ballet - with a central scenery shop providing sets for all productions.

The Slovak National Theatre is located at the historic Neo-Renaissance building on Hviezdoslav Square (built in 1885-1886 to a design by Viennese architects R Fellner and H Helmer) and at the new building opened on 14 April 2007.

The SND is a repertory company with a season extending from the beginning of September to the end of June. Performances are staged every day except Sunday (opera and ballet) or Monday (drama).
