The first ever performance at the National Theatre was a production of Hamlet, staged in October 1963.
For over a decade, it was based in the Old Vic Theatre in Waterloo. The current location on the South Bank was opened gradually with the construction of its three separate stages between 1976 and 1977.
To this day, it remains one of London’s best known and best loved non-profit arts centres, in the company of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal Opera House.
It hosts a widely varied programme, from modern day performances of classic plays to innovative original pieces based on modern events and literature.
