Spiegel Frigyes |main architect


This theatre is the youngest in terms of history of the three independent theatre buildings within the territory of this Romanian city. The Art Nouveau structure by the Pest architects Géza Márkus and Frigyes Spiegel was sharply criticised by Károly Kós, a citizen of Transylvania and a leading figure of Hungarian architecture. It functions up until the present day as a centre for Hungarian cultural activity in Romania.
