The plan to build a new theatre in Banská Bystrica was linked to a regional plan that envisioned the creation of a Central Slovakian metropolitan region with its centres in Banská Bystrica and Zvolen. The theatre was meant to strengthen the position of the town and its new centre. The entry that came out top in the competition designed the theatre in a Post-Modernist style as a town within a town. After the changes that occurred in society in 1989, construction of the theatre came to be seen as more of a political move than a response to local requirements. Consequently, it was never completed.
