6th International Iván Nagy Ballet Gala – ONLINE stream


Balletgala in two acts


The internationally renowned ballet dancer and severaltime ballet director Iván Nagy passed away in 2014. After returning to Hungary, he committed himself to the service of his homeland and worked with us again as a consultant to the Hungarian State Opera. He imparted a wide range of professional knowledge, enhancing the Hungarian National Ballet’s work and leaving a great empty space in our ensemble’s ranks with his demise. In his memory, we each year organise an international ballet gala night, in which soloists from the greatest ballet companies in the world – including the Royal Ballet, the English National Ballet, the Bolshoi, the Paris Opera and the Dutch National Ballet – join the artists of the Opera’s ballet ensemble to pay tribute to Iván Nagy’s knowledge and humanity. 

Founder and director: Tamás Solymosi

Presenter: Szilvia Becze


This performance is available free of charge on the Facebook channel of the Hungarian State Opera.



Premiere: May 24, 2021
