Teatre Nacional de Catalunya (TNC; Catalan pronunciation: [teˈatɾə nəsi.uˈnal də kətəˈluɲə]; English: National Theatre of Catalonia) is a public theatre in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain created by the Culture Department of the Catalan Government.

The building of the theatre took place from 8 November 1991 to 1996 by the Catalan postmodern architect Ricardo Bofill.[1]

On November 12, 1996 it opened with Àngels a Amèrica (Angels in America) by Tony Kushner, and directed by Josep Maria Flotats. The building, like the Royal National Theatre in the UK, contains three theatre spaces: Sala Gran, Sala Petita and Sala Tallers, showing many different types of productions mainly in the Catalan language. Its current artistic director is Sergi Belbel.
