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.
Ágnes Romhányi obtained her degree in Hungarian and Italian from Eötvös Loránd University's Faculty of the Humanities in 1976 and has been an instructor at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music since 1979.

She has also created translations of musical works from Hungarian into Italian (including, for example, of J. Strauss's Die Fledermaus), as well as her own original librettos [for Iván Madarász's Lót (Lot) and Ferenc Darvas's Szerelem a palackban (Love in a Bottle)]. She received the Kálmán Nádasdy Award in 2003.
