Acclaimed actor, Ian McKellen, returns to the Belgrade Theatre where he started his career, to celebrate his 50th year in the acting business, which began in 1961 on the Belgrade’s Main Stage.

This is a unique performance. Ian McKellen will chat about his memories of the Belgrade and his life and career over the last 50 years. He promises to answer questions from the audience and no doubt “do some acting”!

It all started in 1961 when he got his first job in a Belgrade production of A Man for All Seasons. He went on to appear in 15 Belgrade productions before moving on to perform in theatres around the country including the National Theatre and the RSC.

During his career he has also appeared in numerous Hollywood blockbusters such as X-Men, Gods and Monsters, for which his performance was Oscar-nominated, and the multi-award winning Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The performance will be a fundraising event for the Belgrade Theatre and tickets are priced at £19.61 to acknowledge the year of his stage debut. The ticket price includes a glass of bubbly on arrival (non-alcoholic option available).
