List of national theatres

Several countries have one or more national theatres. This component in the name of a theatre indicates that the funding is not only a concern of private investors or the local city, but of the national or federal budget. The Comédie-Française in Paris, founded in 1680, is widely considered to be the world's first national theatre.

Not national theatresEdit

Some theatres carry "national theatre" in their name without being governmentally funded national theatres:
