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.
head costume designer
(1937-2006) Nelly Vágó studied costume design at the Budapest Academy of Arts and Crafts as a student of Judit Schaffer, receiving her diploma in 1962. Her career started that same year in Szolnok, at the Szigligeti Theatre, although she also became a member of the National Theatre at the same time. Working as a guest, she has designed costumes for every theatre in Hungary, both inside and outside Budapest, including for the Opera House and the open-air stages. Her work was frequently linked to the most modern and significant studios and directors. She has designed the costumes for numerous films for television and the cinema. She is an excellent representative of the Hungarian school of design, a visionary creator of artistic costumes of expressive power and rich in colours and shapes. Her costumes support the action and the character's anatomy, dressing them with great confidence in style and taste, an understanding of materials and the tools of modern technology. Her work has often appeared in both solo and group exhibitions. Her awards include the Mari Jászai Award (1972), being named an Artist of Merit (1985) and Artist of Excellence (1998) and the Kossuth Prize (2006).
