Very entertaining performance including folk dancing and orchestra music. The dancing involved 6-7 people in costume doing Hungarian dances backed by an 11 piece orchestra.

We attended a performance at the Danube Palace. The dancers were wonderful and talented. The orchestra was lively and we enjoyed several musical numbers. It was a great way to end our time in Budapest.

We visited with seniors and teens family on Fourth of July - fair to say the dancing served as our crackling "fireworks" on our Fourth - great experience. Dancers with huge precision, great costumes, and wonderful attitude!!!!! Highly recommended.

We sat about 2/3 of the way back and it was great. The theater is small and you want to see the entire stage.
