Dear esteemed audience,

As part of the Hungarian government’s comprehensive economic measures in relation to the war in Ukraine, the ministry maintaining the Hungarian State Opera House gave notice of the reduction of 600 million HUF from the theatre’s annual budget. As a result of previous and further expected measures for savings, OPERA expects a total budget reduction of 1 billion HUF for the year 2022 and 500 million HUF for the year 2023. The recent increase in utility costs and vulnerability to currency exchange rates have placed additional burden on our theater.

For these reasons, the Hungarian State Opera is inclined to make the following changes in its 2022/2023 season plan:

We ask for the kind understanding of our esteemed viewers.
