From January 2021, a new, paid stream service is presented by the Hungarian State Opera. The series of streams including popular repertoire pieces and new productions made necessary by the lockdown, can be viewed from 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays through jegy.hu. Beside the new paid stream service, the Opera continues to stream free performances as well on its Facebook page.
Of the many cancelled shows of 2020 due to the regulations regarding the pandemic, none is so missed by the audience as the irreplaceable Christmas fairy-tale ballet of The Nutcracker. As a special treat by the Hungarian State Opera, a full performance is made available for one day in the OperaLive series on 24 December 2020 on Facebook and Origo.hu.
The Erkel Shop awaits visitors from Wednesday to Saturday until 23 December 2020. If you wish to browse gifts for your loved ones and even yourself, or want to experience a little advent ambiance, make your way to the Erkel Theatre.
