Music-Show with Hungarian flair


How does Strauss or Liszt sound for symphonic orchestra and cimbalom? Look into the history of Hungary through music! Hungary always influenced the European music life more, than it would be expected from such a small country. Unique folklore music traditions gave inspiration to numerous foreign composers visiting Hungary.

With a repertoire covering musical styles such as operetta, gipsy music and Hungarian-related classical music, the Danube Symphony Orchestra leads the grandiose concert, in cooperation with professional ballet dancers serving as confirmation to the fact that music and dance is inseparable. The program includes operetta songs performed by soloists of the world-famous Budapest Operetta Theatre. In addition to all, we took the opportunity to include some unique elements into the program; traditional Hungarian folk instrument, the cimbalom and Hungarian folk songs adaptation performed by authentic gypsy band.


The 90 minutes long concerts (consisting of two 40-45 minute long parts with an intermission in between) take place in two of Budapest's most prestigious theatres; the Danube Palace and the Pesti Vigadó, both in a central downtown location.
