Theater is a popular form of entertainment in many cultures around the world, including in the Republic of Moldova. Moldova has a rich history in terms of theater and dramaturgy, with numerous theater companies and notable theatre throughout the country.

One of the most popular and prestigious theaters in Moldova is the "Mihai Eminescu" National Theater in Chisinau. This theater presents theater performances in a variety of genres, including comedy, tragedy and contemporary theater. Besides the National Theatre, there is other popular theatre in Moldova, such as the Luceafarul Theater and the Republican Theater A.P. Chekhov. These theaters present performances in both Romanian and Russian, as both are recognized as official languages in Moldova.

The level of participation in theaters in Chisinau can vary depending on various factors, including the popularity and reputation of each theater, the specific productions they offer and the preferences of the public. However, famous theaters, such as the National Theater "Mihai Eminescu" or the National Theater of Opera and Ballet "Maria Biesu", often have a significant number of spectators, due to the quality of their productions.
