An Afternoon of Songs with Ildikó Komlósi


An intimate recital by one of our top tenors

Thanks to the opening of the Eiffel Art Studios during the 2020/21 season, Hungarian music life has been enriched by a new venue that will offer the opportunity for filling gaps left elsewhere with special productions and long-forgotten forms. The place therefore also offers an occasion to revive the once-popular tradition of holding song recitals conveying remarkable vocal virtues and challenges. The songs (since the Opera is not a concert hall, but a theatre!) will be linked to dramatic forms in the event series, with the members of the University of Theatre and Film Arts Budapest’s puppetry theatre department (headed by Károly Hoffer and Tibor Csizmadia for the years 2017-2022) creating a theatrical and visually artistic puppet performance for a selected piece for each recital, yet another reason why the programme series is sure to be a singular one.
