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.
Tamás Fülöp is a student in the drama programme headed by Attila Vidnyánszky at the University of Kaposvár's Rippl-Rónai Faculty of the Arts. He has acted in several productions at the National Theatre: Psyche, John the Valiant and Black Sky, White Cloud (all directed by Attila Vidnyánszky), as well as David Doiashvili's production of Cyrano de Bergerac there. At the Csokonai National Theatre of Debrecen, he played the role of Duzzogh in Attila Fige's production of Csongor and Tünde, and he also took the stage of Kispest's “Little” Theatre as Ficsur in Liliom (giving a portrayal that won him the actors' award at the 22nd Moson County Theatre Festival). He has taken part in the youth programme at the Katona József Theatre (the “Woyzeck” études) as well as in Gábor Atlasz's movement and acting course. He has also created a short film, titled Más (Different), for which he served as one of the directors and actors, and also developed a production based on the poems of István Baka entitled “Míg kék borosta serken a csöndre…”, (“While Blue Stubble Grows Out in the Silence”), which ran in both Budapest and Szeged. He is appearing at the Opera House in the production Kádár's Last Speech.
