Dear Visitors and Customers,
The management of the Hungarian State Opera would like to express their gratitude (also on behalf of the sales team) for the patience and understanding shown by their customers in the past weeks and without whom the institute would have no future. The artists and employees of the Opera are determined to do their best to reward all the love and trust once the epidemic is over.
Pianist János Balázs is a winner of the Liszt, Junior Prima, ECHO Rising Star, Gramofon and Prima Primissima awards. He was 13 years old when he gained admission to the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music's programme for exceptional talents. After graduating from the academy, he won six international piano competitions, and is now a regular guest in the best-known concert halls of Europe, North America and Asia. He is a teacher at the Snétberger Music Talent Centre. His free concerts for children, aimed at helping them develop a familiarity with classical music, have attracted more than 10,000 visitors. In 2016, in order to preserve the spiritual legacy of his model, György Cziffra, he established the György Cziffra Festival, and also serves as its artistic director. His performances are marked by a highly personal musical vision. It is his belief that music can only come from the most profound and sincere emotions of the spirit. In recognition of the enormous value created by his work, he was named a Hungarian Artist of Merit in 2018. In 2019 he received the Kossuth Prize.
