We saw Snow White here in an early evening performance and were we impressed by the level of energy in the performers! I mean this show may appeal to kids, but the set was better than some I have seen on Broadway! The dancers were flawless and I love the witty performance of the dwarves. They had kids dancing in the aisles and we applauded them all the way home. Bravo!
Recent upgrades have made this theatre look brand new. Check it out...it won't disappoint.

We had trouble finding this theatre because someone put the wrong adress on the map. So please check the correct adress.We watched Il trovatore (The Troubadour) and it was a world class performace.

We wanted to see the Hungarian national ballet and luckily for us they had a performance of the merry widow to treat us to! It was an amazing performance and if you can make time for a performance please go!! Only problem was no English translation in the program but our tickets cost us £8 each and we got four rows from the front!

What can I say. A first-rate ballet performance, wonderful dancing and orchestra, a box for two of us for a total of £25 in a magnificent Art Deco theatre. I'd shout my recommendation from the rooftops.

Newly reopened Erkel Theatre is the second bastion of Budapest Opera. Good sound quality, modern technologies, but traditionally high quality opera and ballett performances on the stage here.
