Slovak National Theatre
The building was constructed in place of the original Estates Theatre during 1884 - 1886 on the basis of designs by Viennese architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer. Since 1920 it has been the home of the Slovak National Theatre. The most outstanding personalities of the world opera scene have performed here, names such as F. Saliapin, P. Mascagni, R. Strauss, G. Filip, M. Freni, P. Capuccili, R. Reznikov, and J. Obrazcova. The dancers M. Fonteyn, A. Alonso, V. Vasiliev and many others have also performed on its stage.
