Bring your foreigner along to the SND

ALTHOUGH normally foreigners not mastering Slovak language enough can mostly enjoy only the music, dance and opera performances in Slovakia, the Slovak National Theatre offers, for a second time already, a unique chance in January.

During this month, some selected drama performances will have English subtitles so that also non-Slovak speakers can enjoy the crème de la crème of local theatre, through the Bring Your Foreigner Along to the Slovak National Theatre project.

From contemporary Russian drama – Ivan Vyrypaev’s Illusions (5.1.) – through Slovak classics (Francis Švantner’s The Bride of Ridge-7.1; and Ivan Stodola’s The Sheppard’s Wife-23.1) and modern playwrights (Daniel Majling’s: Ján Ámos’ Labyrinths and Paradise-14.1; Karol Horák’s The Prophet Štúr and His Shadow or Revelation...-14.1, and Eugen Gindl’s The Carpathian Thriller-17.1),  to a dramatisation of the novel by Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre, on January 21; or Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary (8.1.), SND has something to offer for all theatre-goers and –lovers.

Tickets can be purchased online from www.snd.sk or from SND box offices, while bookings can be made at 02/2047-2289 or rezervacie@snd.sk. The national theatre also offers the possibility of buying a gift voucher that can later be exchanged for tickets to specific performances at its box office. More information can be found, also in English, at the theatre’s website, ww.snd.sk.
