Prepare for a truly unique evening with one of the most versatile concert programs of the city that aims to showcase the diverse Hungarian culture through the power of music and dance.
What to expect
The Gala performance features the celebrated Danube Symphonic Orchestra with soloists from the Budapest Operetta Theatre accompanying talented local ballet dancers on a classy night of cultural engagement.
Discover the real reason behind Hungary’s fascination with music as you are taken on a journey across the depths of Hungarian music culture from its folk origins to the greats of classical music such as Liszt or Erkel and a wide range of dazzling operetta numbers.
The 90 minute concert is organised in two historical and prestigious venues in the city centre. The Pesti Vigadó, this 18th century building by the Danube bank was the main concert hall for the aristocratic community of Budapest at the time. With it, the stunning Danube Palace gives home to these fabulous performances in its Neo-Baroque style building and golden concert hall. These venues provide authentic style and an irresistible atmosphere for the events to make you feel, if even for 90 minutes, as part of the 1800’s Hungarian cultural elite.
As a highlight of this colourful production, a uniquely Hungarian musical instrument, the cimbalom will be introduced by a talented virtuoso artist. This instrument has been the basis of some of the most popular Hungarian musical compositions. Let its magical sound tell you why it is so special for the locals.
Spend your Saturday evening with the greats of Hungarian music and enjoy a spectacular performance like no other in the heart of Budapest! Inclusion:
