Still Playing catch-up. More soon

“Wagner in Budapest” Opera Festival with LohengrinThe programme of the sixth edition of BUDAPEST WAGNER DAYS features three operas:Parsifal presented in 2006 and re-adapted in 2009 (17 AND 19 JUNE), Tristan and Isolde performed on the stage in 2010 (10 AND 13 JUNE), and Lohengrin “premiering” in 2011 (9, 12 AND 18 JUNE).

The series of events organized in Budapest ( an alternative to Bayreuth?) will be enriched not only by a new piece but also by a new creative team in 2011. Lohengrin’s history will come to life on the stage following the ideas of LÁSZLÓ MARTON, stage manager of Vígszínház theatre, while the art decorator is Péter Horgas.

In 2011, a new element of Wagner Days will be a children version of Lohengrin by ZSOLT HAMAR. The Swanknight, directed by JÁNOS NOVÁK, will be performed in Fesztivál Theatre on 4 AND 5 JUNE.
