Národní Divadlo Brno – Programme
Would you like to experience the performances of National Theatre Brno? They offer many ballet, drama and opera performances in the theatre landmarks of the city – Janáček Theatre, Mahen Theatre and Reduta Theatre.
Good news for expats! The National Theatre Brno is making performances more accessible to foreigners by equipping them with English subtitles.
As an expat living in Brno, I was recently very lucky to see the Romeo and Juliet Ballet organised by the National Theatre in Brno. I was definitely fascinated by their art and how they respect their discipline.
