Hungarian State Opera

New York Tour 2018

The Hungarian State Opera of Budapest makes its Lincoln Center debut with a rich variety of ballet and opera productions to choose from. It will present Hungarian iconic historical opera pieces: Erkel's Bánk bán (The Viceroy Bánk), Goldmark's The Queen of Sheba, world-famous 20th century one-act operas Vajda's Mario and the Magician and Bartók Bluebeard’s Castle, but also beloved classical ballets: Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, and Petipa and Minkus' Don Quixote. Those who prefer more modern ballet pieces can also see Hans van Manen's 2017 triple bill LOL.
