A special New Year evening concert consisting of a symphonic orchestra, hungarian folk song adaptations, operetta and ballet performances

What to expect
Music always had a special place in the Hungarian culture. The country’s unique folklore traditions, its numerous world famous composers and musicians had great influence in the European music life inspiring numerous foreign composers and artists. Now you have the chance to experience this one of a kind harmony with the guidance of the country’s best performers.

The show combines all the captivating elements of Classical, Operetta, Hungarian folk and Gypsy music, forming a truly exciting and precious event. One of the most famous Hungarian classical music ensembles, the Danube Symphony Orchestra is leading the performance, accompanied by professional ballet dancers for a more complex and vivid experience.

The program also features operetta performances by the soloists of the world-famous Budapest Operetta Theatre.

To make the experience more colourful, a special Hungarian instrument, the cimbalom will be introduced. It is a truly unique traditional stringed instrument, which provides perfect harmony, accompanying the grand symphonic orchestra. We would also like to show you the Hungarian folk music heritage, by featuring traditional folk song adaptations performed by an authentic Gypsy ensemble. The show also includes a performance by one of Hungary’s great talents from the national “Virtuosos” talent show.
