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.
Budapest-born Bori Keszei made her debut at Debrecen's Csokonai Theatre in 1996, in the role of Barbarina (in Le nozze di Figaro) before going on to sing numerous lyric coloratura roles as a soloist at the National Theatre of Szeged between 1997 and 2001. From the latter year until 2003, at first as a member of the Hungarian State Opera's studio, and later as a regular member of the company, she sang the roles of Adina (L'elisir d'amore), Norina (Don Pasquale), Gilda (Rigoletto), Melinda (Bánk bán) and Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro) there. From 2003 until the birth of her first child in 2008, she was a soloist at the Wiener Staatsoper, where she sang Oscar (Un ballo in maschera), Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Zdenka (Arabella) and Adele (Die Fledermaus). Apart from opera, she has proved her skill in numerous genres, including singing Maria (in West Side Story at the Szeged Open-Air Festival), Rolla (in Miska the Magnate at the Budapest Operetta Theatre) and Svetlana (in 56 Drops of Blood, at the Vörösmarty Theatre in Székesfehérvár).
