Kuala Lumpur : National Theatre

National Theatre (Istana Budaya)

The National Theatre, completed in May 1999, is a 'lyrical theatre of the 21st century'. It is situated at the junction of Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Kuantan.

In 1964, a proposal to establish a National Cultural Centre was submitted to both the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and the Ministry of Culture and Social Welfare.

The project gathered momentum following the National Cultural Congress in 1971. In 1994, with the release of the financial allocation and building plan, a ground breaking ceremony was officiated by the Prime Minister YAB Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamed.

Construction work began in 1995, and three years later, the National Theatre was relocated to its new premises on Jalan Tun Razak.

In May 1995, the Theatre had its own logo. The Istana Budaya complex itself, which incorporates the National Theatre, was officially opened by the Prime Minister on September 15, 1999.
