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.
Born in Budapest in 2004, András Kiss started his vocal studies in 2004 under Olga Szilágyi, and later continued his studies in Szeged as a student of Mária Temesi.

He has made successful appearances in the National and International József Simándy Singing Competition, and has also been a finalist at Verona’s La bohème competition. Since 2009, he has appeared before audiences at the National Theatre of Szeged in numerous roles, singing Colline in La bohème, Tom in Un ballo in maschera, Dr. Grenvil in La Traviata, Zaretsky in Onegin, King Pomádé in King Pomádé’s New Clothes, Sparafucile in Rigoletto, Don Magnifico in La Cenerentola and Banquo in Macbeth. In the autumn of 2014, he made his debut at the Hungarian State Opera in Ernő Dohnányi’s piece The Tenor. In 2018, he received the Hungarian Bronze Cross of Merit, civil division.
