Adults and children who love yuletide treats are invited to gather round the Erkel Theatre. Once again, there will be choral performances each evening outside the building. With charity in mind, wine will be mulled once again, chestnuts will be freshly roasted, the Opera Shop will be open inside the theatre, where exclusive publications, CDs and DVDs and music-themed books are also available. All proceeds from the performances will go to Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA). Leading artists from the Opera will be serving and selling the products in the huts, while anyone will be able to have their photo taken with the enormous Nutcracker doll.
Our legendary ballet production, The Nutcracker was unchanged since 1950, was renewed four years ago, for technical reasons, the audience will once again see Gusztáv Oláh’s old set, but the new choreography by Wayne Eagling and Tamás Solymosi with Nóra Romhányi’s new costumes at the Erkel Theatre between 29 November 2019 and 6 January 2020.
