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.
Béla Turpinszky Gippert
Béla Turpinszky Gippert was born in Budapest and started studying piano from a young age. His parents are actors, which gave him an early introduction to theatre life. At the advice of his family, he first earned a law degree from the University of Szeged, but also simultaneously pursued his music studies under the guidance of Ilona Adorján, Margit Kaposi, Géza Oberfrank and László Kéringer. He was 22 years old when he made his debut as a singer. He has appeared at the theatres of Miskolc, Győr, Kecskemét, Debrecen and Szeged, as well as at the Hungarian Opera of Kolozsvár (Cluj-Napoca). He has participated in the examination performances at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music since 2013. In addition to his opera work, he has also performed in concerts in Paris, Dresden, Belgrade, Copenhagen and in Sweden. He is currently spending six months in Italy, where he is soloist on the classical opera cruises arranged by a Genovese concert planner for Costa Cruises. His repertoire includes roles from Erkel, Bizet, Puccini, Verdi, Beethoven, Mascagni, Wagner, Leoncavallo, Prokofiev and Mozart.
