The Hungarian National Ballet presents a new Laurencia production choreographed by Michael Messerer on 6 March 2020. The production that can be seen seven times this season aims to enchant audiences with spectacular solo dances, duets and ensembles.
Dear Visitors and Customers,
According to the Operational Group commissioned by the Government of Hungary responsible for the containment of the coronavirus epidemic, the height of the spread of the epidemic was expected on 3 May 2020. Therefore, taking the usual one-month rehearsal period into consideration, any theoretical chances of having any performances in the 2019/20 season had ceased. The earliest possibility for the Hungarian State Opera to be open for audiences is in September 2020.
Opera singer, eternal member, master artisttenor
Péter Kelen graduated from the Béla Bartók High School of Music. In 1972, he won the Opera House's scholarship and became a soloist there in 1973. Soon afterwards, he was receiving principal roles and quickly became one of the key figures of late 20th century opera performance. He sings lyric and spinto tenor roles. Each of his portrayals is characterised by deep empathy, suggestive dramatic force and multifaceted acting talent. He has been involved with several opera film productions (e.g. Gianni Schicchi 1975, Pagliacci 1979, Les Contes d'Hoffmann 1981) and oratorio performances. He has made guest appearances at Milan's La Scala and the Wiener Staatsoper, among other venues.
