Entitled Collapsed walls, broken hearts. On the body and soul of the National Theater – chamber exhibition a chamber exhibition was running in National Széchényi Library between April 23 and May 22, 2015. Now a virtual exhibition compiled from the material of this chamber exhibition can also be visited.

Based on an exhibition set up in NSZL’s Theater History Collection jointly with Dr. Orsolya Ring, archivist of the National Archives of Hungary, an online exhibition presenting related documents of our collections was launched on the website of the National Archives.

We commemorate the theater which had been opened in1875 and was torn down exactly 50 years ago, the Folk Theater which, from 1908 onwards, served as the home of Hungary’s National Theater.
