Where can I find the schedule for the Hungarian State Opera?

Thank you for the question. If you want to find a schedule and buy tickets for the Hungarian State Opera I recommend that you visit Jegymester. There you will find an overview of performances and you will also be able to order tickets online for any performance.

Notice that the Hungarian State Opera has a long summer break so from end of May/June until end of September there are no performances available in the State Opera. If you still want to visit the building there are guided tours every day at 15.00 and 16.00 in this period!

Enjoy and hope you find what you are looking for.

Ask your Budapest question!

Are there any performances in the Hungarian State Opera during summer?

I will travel to Budapest in August this summer and wonder if there are any performances taking place in the Hungarian State Opera in that period?

opera in Budapest during summerThank you for your question. During the summer months the Hungarian State Opera is only available as a tourist attraction and unfortunately not as a cultural place. This means that there are guided tours in the building daily at 15.00 and 16.00, but there are no events taking place in July and August. The first performances normally start by the end of September, so also in 2012 when the first event will be happening on September 24th (a classical concert) and then continuing with the opera Hunyadi Laszlo from September 28th.

Sorry about that, but do not forget that BUdapest has lots of other cool activities and programs to offer visitors, so we hope you will not be bored even though the Opera is standing still in this period.
