The Opera wishes to emphasize: the performances have not been cancelled due to the press controversy but by the decreasing interest generated by it.
Those who trust the reasons of the Opera can still purchase tickets for more than 20 performances which have been running twice daily since Tuesday. As a refutation of certain uninformed media platforms accusing us, misguiding readers deliberately with false information, we can recommend our official website www.opera.hu. Audiences can see the availability of tickets for every single performance. Tickets can also be bought through the website. (Please note: due to common theatre practice the upper tiers of the theatre are unavailable until the seats in the stalls with no restricted view all sell out.)
The Billy Elliot - The Musical production has been running for two years now. Its 90 performances have been seen by over 100 thousand people. The Hungarian State Opera wishes to express its gratitude toward it audiences.
