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.
