TENORISSIMO – festive opera gala with Fabio Sartori and Hungarian singers


Gala concert in two parts, with Hungarian and English surtitles

For the third time, the OPERA presents a spectacular end-of-summer concert in late August. After Jonas Kaufmann from Germany, Lawrence Brownlee from the United States, and Patricia Petibon from France, a heroic tenor from Italy, Fabio Sartori will join our distinguished Hungarian singers on stage – this time at the refurbished Opera House.
