- What’s On
Established by Süreyya İlmen Pasha in 1927, the Süreyya Opera House was the first musical theatre on the Anatolian side of Istanbul. It was known then as the Süreyya Operetta. After the closure of the Atatürk Cultural Centre in Taksim for reasons that have never been made clear a decade ago, Kadıköy assumed the mantle of home of the Istanbul Opera and Ballet, and what had become the Süreyya Cinema was given a thorough makeover, reopening in 2007.
