The production, presenting the most turbulent and the most real century in the history of the Slovenians, features in an innovative way also the exhibition Capital 2018 of the most recent and precious art works by the famous IRWIN collective. 26, 27 and 28 March at 18.30.
Although it is set in the 17th century, its historical themes ̶ the Thirty Years War, witch hunts and the persecution of Protestants ̶ made it easily accessible for readers after the Great War. How topical is a chronicle of long-gone times when it addresses us a hundred years later - from a theatre stage? 30 March at 18.30.
Drama-opera talks about a female violinist travelling by train across Europe. In the course of her journey and stopovers at various railway stations, the story of her life unfolds, from a little girl who wanted to become a top musician, while her father spent the money earmarked for her school fees, to an old woman, still searching to find her spot under the European sky, having spent her entire life as a busker. 30 March at 20.00.
The comedy managed to inaugurate Slovenian playwriting from its very start as an autonomous, linguistically sovereign, shrewdly clever and witty genre, characterized by, in addition to its literary merits, the qualities that are stage specific: compelling characters, energetic dialogue, dramatic plot and numerous situations involving the use of space. 31 March at 19.30.
The Main Stage in the more than hundred year-old Austro-Hungarian building has served exclusively for the staging of performances in the Slovenian language since 1919. At present, following numerous renovations, the auditorium which consists of the stalls, the circle, boxes, and the balcony can seat 436 visitors.
The Small Stage, after the renovation in 2013, still ensures safe and pleasant working conditions and an improved atmosphere for visitors. The attractive interior consists of 100 seats, a larger foyer, a new entrance, a new elevator enabling access for disabled people in wheelchairs, a new staircase, etc.
Our top level foyer, a venue above the Drama Café, is dedicated to the memory of Jernej Šugman, one of our most eminent actors. The Šugman Salon welcomes you to enjoy screenings of archive footage of our past productions, talks, lectures and convivial get-togethers.
