The National Theatre of Győr is one of the country’s most frequented theatres, its permanent company boasts a number of renowned actors. Its repertoire features all genres with operettas enjoying the highest popularity. Led by director Péter Forgács, the theatre also enjoys recognition outside of Győr, its performances are visited by theatregoers from Budapest, neighbouring towns and even Slovakia. Breaking away from the well-established baroque style characterizing the town’s architecture, the theatre building is a divisive, modern piece of architecture decorated by such renowned artists as Victor Vasarely or Endre Szász.
