Háry János


Singspiel in four adventures with prologue and epilogue, in Hungarian with English surtitles
Four adventures bearing little resemblance to reality during the Napoleonic Wars, all based on folk music and presented by an old veteran. Title Character sacrifices career for sweetheart, choosing Örzse and the provincialism of Nagyabony over the Imperial Palace in Vienna (which you did not need a ticket to see back then).
