symphonic orchestra concert

Every year it is a great event when Hungary’s first symphony orchestra, the Opera Orchestra performs for the first time between the walls of a brick-and-mortar theatre in the new season, after the summer break and the special open-air tasks of the summer. Our aim is to increasingly show our audiences that our orchestral performances will be built around three main features that we wish to use in order to clearly differentiate the orchestra and the institution from the multitude of excellent programmes in Budapest. First: we wish to provide concert-goers a visual (we like to say a “multidisciplinary”) experience worthy of the Opera, including with the use of lighting effects, projection, and other related arts. Second: Opera Orchestra concerts will always include opera overtures, as we understand and play these excellent works best, and will also include opera songs or other works requiring singers in addition to the symphony orchestra. Third: The best members of the Opera Orchestra should always be provided a role as solo performers.
