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.
János Szilágyi was born in Tasnád (Tășnad) in 1975 and completed his studies in Kolozsvár (Cluj-Napoca): at the Reformed High School there and at the Gheorghe Dima Academy of Music (his teachers were Angela Nemeş and Dan Serbac). He is a member of the Hungarian Opera of Cluj-Napoca. His work has been recognised with the Ágnes Kriza Award. His repertoire includes roles from Puccini (Colline, Bonzo, Angelotti, Betto and Simone), Mozart (Sarastro and the Old Priest), Beethoven (Rocco), Rossini (Don Basilio), Donizetti (Raimondo), Verdi (Sparafucile, Doctor Grenvil, Pistola, Attila, the High Priest of Baal), Strauss (Truffaldino), Bizet (Zuniga), Bartók (Bluebeard), Ferenc Erkel (Ulrik Cillei, Biberach, Péter and King Coloman the Learned) and György Selmeczi (the Conductor).
