Why See Hungarian State Opera - Gala?

A Gala Celebrating Hungarian Dance & Music

With their historic home venue currently under construction, the world renowned Hungarian State Opera embarks on a historic tour of US shores, bringing the music of their homeland to New York City's Lincoln Center for a strictly limited run this Fall. The 134 year old company debuts a vibrant program of ballet and opera works, including the US premieres of Ferenc Erkel's Bank Ban and Janos Vajda's one-act opera Mario and the Magician.

Inviting the Hungarian National Ballet to the stage for the first time during their exciting short residency, conductor Gergely Kesselyak and the opera present a dazzling gala evening filled with Hungarian music and dance, giving audiences a wide-ranging taste of their combined repertoires. The evening sets off to a rousing start with Ferenc Erkel's National Anthem, followed by selections from the father of Hungarian Grand Opera's works Laszlo Hunyadi and Bank Ban, as well as Liszt's Preludes and Piano Concerto No 1. The latter half of the program focuses on dance with works including Andras Lukacs and Philip Glass' Whirling, as well as Hans van Manen's Trois Gnossiennes.
