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 the Transylvanian community of Székelykeresztúr (Cristuru Secuiesc), Zsejke Székely graduated from the Gheorghe Dima Music Academy in Kolozsvár (Cluj-Napoca) in 1999, and has performed in numerous classical and contemporary operas, operettas and singspiels since then.
