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 also a amember of the children’s chorus 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. The programme begins at St. Stephen’s Basilica, designed by Miklós Ybl, and then continues in the afternoon at the Eiffel with a sacral production performed by our chorus performers. The day is closed with a production of the Cross Cantatas, where all of our choral artists may sit in to enjoy the show.
