On the first Sunday of advent, we not only decorate an enormous tree befitting of the wonder of Andrássy Avenue, but also invite adults and children who love yuletide treats to gather round on II. János Pál pápa square. Once again, there will be a choral performances each evening at the Erkel Theatre before each evening’s performance. With charity in mind, the wine of Piarista Bor will be mulled once again, chestnuts will be freshly roasted and the full range of the Opera’s exclusive drinks range will be available to buy. Meanwhile, the OperaShop will move out onto the street and offer recordings, and books. All proceeds will go to Interchurch Aid (HIA) and are expected to generate substantial income for the organisation. 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 will be performed a total of 23 times.
László Lehel, President of Hungarian Interchurch Aid, will greet the audience.
