The oldest and largest professional chorus in Hungary is the Hungarian State Opera Chorus. The director of the chorus consisting of 160 artists is Gábor Csiki, who was a member of the chorus for 20 years. The largest and most active children’s chorus in Hungary, the Hungarian State Opera Children’s Chorus is led by Nikolett Hajzer, who was a member too as a young girl. On this special day of the long and difficult season both the young and the more experienced artists of the chorus will be playing a leading role.
