Castle Theatre, Budapest: 3 reviews and 2 photos
Originally constructed as a Carmelite church in 1736, the building was later redesigned as a theatre following the dissolution of the order by Joseph II in 1784. For a short time it was used by a German theatre company, although performances were given in Hungarian from 1790 onwards.
Despite being heavily damaged during World War II, the theatre retains its original baroque fa?ade, though sadly, the wooden gallery which survived right up until 1924 has since been replaced by a much smaller one made from marble and concrete. Surprisingly, the theatre was not renovated until the late-seventies, before finally re-opening to the public in 1978.
