National Theatre

The National Theatre of Iceland has been a leading institution on the Icelandic theatre scene ever since it opened formally on 20 April 1950.

Today the theatre has three separate venues: the Main Stage (500 seats), the Black Box (180 seats) and the Workshop Stage (150 seats). Between ten and fourteen plays are premiered each season, comprising a varied repertoire of new Icelandic works, new foreign works, Icelandic and foreign classics, musicals, operas and childrens' productions.
