Summer Portraits of Eternal Members
The summer series of the Opera Café TV programme pays tribute to the Eternal Members of the Hungarian State Opera: each year, while the theatre world is on its summer break, it will feature ten portraits of some of the most important personalities from the institution’s recent past. The 26-minute portraits will continue to be broadcast on the M5 cultural television channel and will later appear on commercial and local television channels too. Beside Eternal Members, such influential personalities are also featured in the series who were so outstanding in their time that places and spaces of the Eiffel Art Studios were named after them. Their life and achievements are revealed by Márton Karczag, Head Archive Manager.
(The films are available in Hungarian only, with no subtitles.)
