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.
(1887-1943) Zsolt Harsányi was a writer, journalist, literary translator and theatre director. He studied humanities and law at the university in Kolosvár (Cluj-Napoca), where he also edited the journal Theatre Week, as he also later would in Budapest. He also worked for the newspapers Budapest News, Pest News and New Times, in addition to serving as the director of the Comedy Theatre in 1938. He shares credit with Béla Paulini for jointly writing the libretto for the singspiel Háry János.
