Bethlen Theater
Come and have a taste of Chicago!

… okay, not quite Chicago but almost: the location of our small theatre is called „Csikágó” because its rapid growth and development reminded people of Chicago.

Even if you stay in Budapest for a short time, it is good to visit a cultural spot – we offer a variety of performances even for those who do not speak Hungarian.

Every month you find dance performances (both contemporary and folk) and concerts in our programme.
