2015 marks the 250TH ANNIVERSARY OF PUBLIC THEATRE IN POLAND. The festivities began in February 2015 at the National Helena Modrzejewska Stary Teatr with an opening ceremony honoring creators, artists, and representatives of public theaters. A new curtain created for the main stage of the Stary Teatr in recognition of 250 YEARS OF PUBLIC THEATRE IN POLAND was unveiled. A staging of Henryk Sienkiewiczs Trilogy, directed by Jan Klata, kicked off the years events, which include educational conferences, competitions, exhibitions and urban space performances.
The first theater performance ever in Poland was given 250 years ago by a theater troupe founded on the initiative of King Stanislaw August Poniatowski.
The artists then formed the oldest public, national theater in Poland, which has later became known as Teatr Narodowy (The National Theater).
The anniversary events are coordinated by the Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute in Warsaw.
