Janáček Theatre is a part of the National Theatre in Brno.
When opened, Janáček Theatre was the largest and technically best equipped theatre in the then Czechoslovakia.
Almost 80 years of preparations had preceded its establishment.
From 1880 the Association of the Czech National Theatre in Brno had been trying to acquire funds to build a separate representative theatre that would reflect the importance and role of a Brno Czech theatre.
The funds required to build a new theatre building were raised by means of collections, bazaars, and tombolas, and between the years of 1910 and 1958 a total of seven architectural competitions concerning design of the new building were held.
However, the construction was suspended due to two world wars, subsequent repairs of the existing buildings and other complications; the representative opera and ballet theatre was finally built as late as in 1960 to 1965.
The construction work also involved the layout of the area around the building, especially the terrace and the relaxation zone with a water reservoir and fountain.
The technical potential and architectural concept of the theatre made it ideal particularly for large opera and ballet productions and once completed, the theatre became the permanent seat of the National Theatre Brno opera.
It is a part of the National Theatre in Brno.
