Porgy and Bess
Pretty much everybody has heard the classic hits I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’ and It Ain’t Necessarily So? and, perhaps most famous of all: Summertime. What most people don't realize, however, is that these great songs are not simply old jazz standards. They started life as the most popular parts of one of the most famous American operas: Porgy and Bess.

The St. Stephen’s Basilica is one of the most beautiful neo-classical buildings of Budapest. This is the most important church in Hungary, one of the most significant tourist attractions and the third highest building in Hungary.
After watching David Belasco's play The Girl of the Golden West on his 1907 visit to New York, Puccini resolved to set this somewhat unusual love story of the Wild West to music on the opera stage. The dramatic material proved to be a good choice, with an effectively moving plot that takes viewers to the denouement with a sure hand. The character of Minnie is also a highly suitable addition to Puccini's ranks of heroines: driven by love and passion, she thus has no fear of risking even her own life.

The lecherous noblemen of the Mantuan court must be entertained, and a deformed jester spares no one his jeers to ensure that they are. And yet he prays that the scathing mockery he heaps on the suffering of others will not return to haunt him. All he must do is seal his work off from his family life.

Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker has been an essential part of the Opera's run-up to Christmas for decades. In memory of Vasili Vainonen and Gusztáv Oláh, we first presented for Christmas of 2015 a new buffed-up show that follows classical ballet traditions while still conforming to the requirements of 21st century dance and set design.
