The first information about theatrical performances in Opava dates back to 1630. The foundation stone of the Silesian Theatre was laid on 1st May 1804, the building was finished on 1st October 1805. The theatre was later rebuilt in years 1882 – 1883 according to the design of Eduard Labický. After it had burned down on 16th June 1909 the interior of the theatre was newly designed by F. Moser.
