Slovak National Theatre

Theatre & Opera

Slovenské národné divadlo, jedna z najvýznamnejších kultúrnych inštitúcií Slovenska, začalo písať svoje dejiny roku 1920. Dnešné Slovenské národné divadlo tvoria tri zložky so stálym profesionálnym umeleckým súborom: Činohra, Opera a Balet.

Divadlo v slovenskom jazyku sa začalo na Slovensku hrať už v roku 1831 a zohralo významnú úlohu v procese národného obrodenia. Profesionalizácia slovenského činoherného umenia však nastala až po vzniku SND, aj to nie hneď. Prvý umelecký kolektív Činohry SND vytvorili členovia Východočeského divadla.

Na území dnešného Slovenska sa opera hrá už dobré tri storočia. Platí to predovšetkým pre Bratislavu, kde zhruba tristo rokov korunovali uhorských kráľov, mesto, ktoré sa samo nazývalo "predmestím" cisárskej metropoly. A tak si z Viedne do barokovej Bratislavy odskakovali talianske operné spoločnosti.

Založenie národného divadla roku 1920 vyvolalo aktivitu smerujúcu k vzniku vlastného baletného súboru. Zároveň však vyvstala otázka: Odkiaľ získavať potrebné umelecké osobnosti? Po zániku rakúsko-uhorskej monarchie neexistovala domáca baletná škola, a tak zostala jediná možnosť: pozvať českých tanečníkov a choreografov a využiť ich pomoc v rámci novovzniknutej republiky.

Places Around

Al Faro

Al Faro

Al Faro is one of the most successful restaurants on the waterfront of Bratislava’s Eurovea center, and it has been operating without major changes since its opening. Even without knowledge of Italian, it is easy to guess that the name means “lighthouse” – although according to the menu it refers to the tower of nearby Warehouse No. 7. A harbor, river, or lighthouse is very close to fish and therefore the concept of the Italian Al Faro restaurant puts an emphasis on fish.
