The National Theatre in Oslo (Norwegian: Nationaltheatret) is one of Norway's largest and most prominent venues for performance of dramatic arts.


The theatre had its first performance on 1 September 1899 but can trace its origins to Christiania Theatre, which was founded in 1829. There were three official opening performances, on subsequent days in September: first, selected pieces by Ludvig Holberg, then An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen, and on the third day Sigurd Jorsalfar by Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson.

  • A charming old building in a classical architecture located downtown Oslo. Easily accessible by metro and other public transportation. Lovely exterior and interiors, work out a bit with are (will be soon closed for renovations), stages plays and theatre in Norwegian. There is a park around, nice place to hang out during the summer.
  • One of the best theater at Oslo. Conferable and a lot of fun. It is small but high quality artistic. Historical and a must visit destination for tourists.
