Oslo Nye Teater is a theater located in Oslo, Norway. The theater has its main stage in its own theater house at Rosenkrantz' gate 10. It is one of Norway's most visited theatres. Oslo Nye Teater AS is wholly owned by Oslo Municipality. [1][2][3]


The theater opened as Det Nye Teater on February 26, 1929. Architects Gudolf Blakstad (1893–1985) and Jens Dunker (1898–1984) were engaged to design the building resulting in a concrete building in a simplified neoclassical style. In 1994–1995, a thorough upgrade of the audience area in the theater building was carried out under the direction of the architects Kristin Jarmund and Ola Helle.

In September 1959, Oslo Nye Teater resulted from a merge between Folketeatret and Det Nye Teater. Folketeatret had operated independently since 1952. The operation of Oslo Nye Centralteatret was taken over by Oslo Nye Teater in 1971. Oslo Nye Teater now operates from four stages; Oslo Nye Hovedscenen, Oslo Nye Centralteatret, Oslo Nye Trikkestallen and Oslo Nye Teaterkjeller’n. [4][5][6]
