The second stage covered renovation of dressing rooms, restaurant rooms, kitchens, sanitary facilities and maintenance rooms. A part of the works consisted of the following: replacing flooring, wall coverings, electrical and sanitary installations, door woodwork and full furnishing of the rooms. The third stage consisted of completing the works in the construction and electronics industry related to the reconstruction of the stage of the main theatre building and design with a reconstruction of technological elements of the main stage support area.
