About National Theatre Vienna

The National Theater also goes by the name of The Burgtheater. It is located outside of the city hall at the famous Ring Boulevard. A tinge of history is attached to the formation of this place. Empress Maria went on to hand over this unusual dance parlour to a theatre owned company referred to as Sellier. In the year 1888, the company went on to move in a nearby house. It was from this point of time this building has been used as a theatre house.

It happens to be a beautiful façade whose marble has gone on to be cleaned recently is embedded with famous statues coupled with figures that go on to depict love and hate at the same time. Once you are inside this place it provides a great atmosphere for the cultural events. This place has been credited with a worldwide reputation in terms of dramatic art and is one among the top 5 German speaking theatres of Europe. This place is pretty much proud of its emphasis on Austrian playrights. The audience who tend to assemble here are ready to celebrate with the actors, directors or the stars.

Originally it was known as the K.K theatre it is regarded as one of the oldest German language theaters. It was formed in the year 1741 and was known as Die Burg, by the local population. All the members who are part of it has gone to formulate a traditional style that depicts the Burg theatre performances.

In the month of March 1945, this theatre went on to be destroyed in a bomb raid and before it was one month, a fire had a major impact on the premises as well. From 1953 to 1955, the theatre went on to be restored after the war.

It does happen to be an important theatre since it was dedicated to the royal family along with the court. The building tends to be very dominating with beautiful architecture that is so typical for this place at the same time.

In the interior of the place you can come across grand staircases which have a long foyer that works as curves towards the central theatre hall. Inside this place you can come across a wide range of classical programs from traditional to modern ones in German language.  

As far as the choice of directors or plays is concerned it is being closely analysed by the patrons and cultural along with political debates are very much part of this place. The auditorium of this place can go on to hold around 1200 people and the interior of the place is so beautiful that it has two beautiful staircases which are the brainchild of the Klimt brothers who have done a great job.
