Danube Palace The former Casino of Lipótváros, built in 1895, is one of the most famous Neo-Baroque building of Budapest, where world-famous composers like Bartók, Dvorak and Kodály conducted their own compositions. At that time it was known as an aristocratic club for entertainment not a casino in terms of gambling. After the war, since 1951 the building has been carrying out the cultural programs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Pesti Vigadó, one of Hungary’s most famous theatres, was finished in 1864. It was built on the place of its predecessor, which was destroyed following the Hungarian revolution of 1848 as a form of retribution. Following the defeat of the revolution in 1859, architect Frigyes Feszl created a completely reformed, new design for the building. He mixed the Hungarian architecture with Moor, Romanesque and Gothic elements. Feszl’s concept gained so much popularity, that it was used on the construction of numerous buildings all over Hungary at the time. Since its opening, Pesti Vigadó was a centre of the cultural life and entertainment in Budapest.

The arias of the program are performed by Kolos Kováts, one of the most famous concert and oratorio singers in Hungary. Among numerous prizes, in 1992 he also received also the highest prize a hungarian artist can aquire: the Kossuth Prize. The flute is played by Eleonóra Krusic who is already known for her performances with different orchestras from Barcelona, Zürich, Graz and Vienna.

Hungarian State Folk Ensemble

The ensemble ­ established in 1951 ­ aims to collect and play authentic folk music and to preserve the Hungarian folk dances and traditional costumes of Hungarian inhabited areas by putting them on stage for the public. During the more than five decades of its existence, the Ensemble has achieved its goal by revitalizing the culture of the Hungarian people. Their rich and colorful repertoire entitled the Ensemble to be regarded as one of the top touring groups in the world. It has performed in 44 countries across four continents and won the admiration of an audience of more than seven and a half million people. In the last few years the Ensemble encountered special interest in the United States and Canada ­ which was illustrated by their fourth invitation to undertake a three­ month coast to coast American tour in 1994. They have also toured the Far East and Western Europe.
The Ensemble consists of 30 dancers, 14 members of the Gipsy Orchestra and 5 members of the Hungarian Folk Orchestra. The choreographies are all based on authentic dances, some of them were collected in isolated villages with dance elements dating back hundreds of years.
The extraordinary folk music that inspired Liszt, Bartók and Kodály is put on stage by both the Folk Orchestra and the world ­famous Gipsy Orchestra.
The 5 members of the Folk Orchestra play authentic, traditional instruments and perform Hungarian folk music at its highest artistic niveau. The famous Gipsy Orchestra plays both dance accompaniments and performs alone. Their rich repertoire includes folk music which inspired Hungarian and international classical composers such as Liszt, Brahms, Kodály and Bartók.
Aside from its performances around the country and abroad, the Ensemble gives approximately 90-100 annually performances at its Corvin tér theatre, the Budai Vigadó or Danube Palace. The performances take place at Corvin tér Theatre, the Budai Vigadó. Every concert starts at 20:00 consisting of two 40-45 minutes long parts with an intermission in between.

 

Danube Folk Ensemble

Founded in 1957, the Danube Folk Ensemble is one of the most popular professional folk-dancing groups of Hungary. The ensemble consists of 24 dancers and 5 musicians, both excellent in their profession. They aim to perform genuine dynamic, stylish dances, and to create innovative dance-theatre pieces based on those principles. The Ensemble's repertoire includes some true gems of hte hungarian folk-dance tradition, while the folk music is faithfully interpreted by its musicians; varied and broad it provides for numerous unique and full performances. The ensemble gives over a hundred performances yearly, including their weekly appearance at the Duna Palota! Besides presenting their own repeertoire, they participated in various theatre productions. The Danube Folk Ensemble is consistently included in the events of the Ministry of the Interior and at celebrations of National Holidays. These performances take place at the Parliament building or the Buda Castle, and are usually shown live on national television. In the last 20 years the ensemble performed in England, Cuba, Poland, Australia, France, at the Sevilla Expo, in Finland, Romania, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra

Founded by gipsy musicians, the ensemble’s gift and their key to success is the inherited traditions of centuries old gipsy art. Their work’s based on the tradition and the heritage of old, allows us to rightfully call them world famous. The exceptional professional skills of the Hungaria are due to the special educational method that concentrates on preserving their natural attitude for improvisation an essential precondition of virtuosity. The Hungaria Orchestra performs in lots of different formations, the fifty strong main orchestra and the six to eight splinter chamber groups are equally celebrated by guest on the world’s most prestigious stages. They are also adept at accompanying well known soloists and dance ensembles. The incredible range of their repertoire covers many genres from classical to folk music, and from operettas to gipsy music, of course. An equally high reputation has also been gained by the Hungaria Folk Ensemble. This group of 60 fiery performers owes its current status to decades of hard work of their predecessors. They specialise in Hungarian folk dance but are equally able to perform operettes, ballet, and modern dance. The high professional attainment of the dancers is largely due to eight to ten years of intense training which begins at a very early age. They are true professionals dedicated to achieving the highest of standards.
