The Slovak National Theatre stages opera and ballet at its two main venues in the city. One of those venues – the historical opera house – is also currently being used for performances by the country's main orchestra, the Slovak Philharmonic.
Jazz is also popular and local and international artists play regular gigs at two dedicated jazz clubs. There is also a major jazz festival in November each year, the Bratislava Jazz Days, which attracts top foreign and local talent.
Bratislava has a strong tradition of drama, though most performances are in Slovak so will not be immediately accessible to English-speaking audiences. However, English-language films are normally shown in the original language, and there are several cinemas in or close to the centre.
