The Hungarian National Theatre is located in Budapest and was originally opened in 1837. The Theater's website boasts four different stages, all packed with scheduled shows. 

The Hungarian State Opera is also located in Budapest. Construction of the Opera House began in 1875 and resulted in an astonishingly beautiful building. The Hungarian opera is a thriving host to youth performances, education, galas, festivals, and more.
