 Istana Budaya (National Theatre), Kuala Lumpur


Istana Budaya (National Theatre) Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Istana Budaya
(National Theatre)

Among the top ten most sophisticated theatres in the world, Istana Budaya is proud to be the first theatre in Asia equipped with cutting-edge stage equipment that is on par with the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Here, visitors can enjoy performances from the National Symphony Orchestra featuring Malaysia's talented young musicians. Also on its annual calendar are cultural and musical performances as well as internationally acclaimed musicals, concerts and ballet performances.


The main building takes the form of the 'sirih junjung' (a traditional arrangement of betel leaves used in Malay weddings and welcoming ceremonies), and is divided by function mimicking a traditional Malay house.

The first of three sections is the 'serambi' (lobby and foyer) followed by the 'rumah ibu' (mother house) as the auditorium, and last but not least, the 'rumah dapur' (kitchen) as the stage and rehearsal hall.

The interior of the Istana Budaya is something visitors would not want to miss as it is built from Langkawi marble and decorated with tropical wooden doors, which feature hand-carved flower and leaf motifs. Walking within the Istana Budaya helps visitors experience and see Malaysian culture and heritage.

The Istana Budaya is open from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm - Monday to Friday.

Tickets can be bought at the Istana Budaya Box Office counter from 9.00 am to 7.00pm - Monday to Friday.

Performances are dependent on the promoter's yearly schedule.
