The Grand Theater in Warsaw
Looking back at history, Warsaw has seen its fair share of drama, but the Grand Theater in Warsaw is the city’s premier cultural building and a must for your visit to the Polish capital. Located in the historic Theatre Square in Warsaw, the Grand Theater is a theater complex and opera company that first opened in 1833 with a debut production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville. It is also the architectural work of Antonio Corazzi. After having been severely damaged during World War II, the theater reopened in 1965 after an almost twenty-year reconstruction period.
Inside, the National Opera features two auditoriums, the Stanislaw Moniuszko Auditorium and the Emil Mlynarski Auditorium which seat 1,841 and 248 spectators respectively. It is also home to the National Museum and the Warsaw Ballet Company.
To reach the Grand Theater, take the Stare Miasto tram. It is open from 9:00am to 6:00pm from Monday through Saturday and closed on Sundays. For more information, contact +48 22 692 02 00.
