Royal Theatre Zetski Dom was founded in 1884 in Cetinje and it is the oldest theatre in Montenegro.
Cetinje is the old royal capital of Montenegro, founded in the 15th century, and nowadays it is a major town of the Republic of Montenegro and a city museum due to its historical tradition.
The first theatre interior was lavishly designed, modelled on European chamber theatres.
The first performance in this historic building was "Balkan Empress" (Balkanska carica) by Prince Nikola I Petrovic, statesman, philosopher and writer, the author of the greatest poetic work of his century "The Mountain Wreath" (Gorski vijenac)
In the period from 1991-1992, the project of reconstruction of the theatre Zetski dom was funded from the budget of Montenegro.
Svetlost Teatar developed the project of technological systems for the reconstructed stage of Zetski dom and delivered, produced and installed the systems of stage machinery, stage lighting and audio video systems.
After the reconstruction, Zetski dom has became the stage of the Academy of Theatre Arts of Montenegro.
During difficult and uncertain political turmoil of the time, it was opened to the public on 19 December 1992
