What to wear to the opera

by paddingtonbears

At Covent Garden one can wear pretty much anything these days, though I am still more comfortable in a jacket and tie. I've only worn black tie to the opera once, and that was for a special performance. I'm wondering what to wear to the Hungarian State Opera House. One of the guide books - I forget which - recommended 'evening dress', as this was what most Hungarians wore to the opera. Is it possible that the author accidentally turned up on a gala night? I find it hard to believe that there is anywhere now where one wears white or black tie to the opera every night. I wonder whether somebody who has been to the opera house in Budapest could advise whether this author was correct, or whether jacket and tie as one would wear to Covent Garden would be perfectly acceptable.

I think you will find it pretty much the same as in the ROH - almost anything goes. Friends who insisted on wearing balck tie gear felt very over-dressed. We stuck with shirts,tie and jacket / dress and jacket - smart casual but comfortable and relaxed rather than formal.

Anything goes nowadays.

Though surely no harm in going slightly well-dressed! No need for the tie however!

Go ahead; wear the tie. Men look much sexier in ties. IMHO . . .

My husband always wears a tie to the opera . . . and to dinner in a restaurant . . . and to church. He looks great and is always treated with respect.

Re: What to wear to the opera

Yes, I was going to say, I shall probably be persuaded into a tie anyway!

When we go to the opera in Budapest we dress well (suit & tie, dress). We generally get pretty good seats (but not the most expensive) and everyone sitting around us dresses the same as we do or better with very, very few exceptions. Then in the cheapest seats we can see the tourists who believe in "anything goes". The Americans are the large ones with the white tennis shoes.

Middle aged and older Hungarians dress smart for the opera, but you see lots of students and backpackers wearing jeans.

Masha, Clearly you're corresponding with dinosaurs in that case ;-)

"Middle aged and older Hungarians dress smart for the opera" So do respectful tourists. Unfortunately the norm today is the lowest common denominator.

Re: What to wear to the opera

by paddingtonbears

If you were interested the guidebook in question was the DK Eyewitness guide to Budapest published 2009. It says that tourists would feel more comfortable in evening dress (because they would blend in with the crowd). The principal contributors to the book, which was produced in Warsaw, seem to be Polish, so maybe something has been lost in translation. I'll pack a tie (as I would for Covent Garden anyway) but will be relieved to be able to leave my dinner jacket at home!

Re: What to wear to the opera

We go from time to time and get a box. Almost No one sitting above the floor is without a tie. its a real small price to pay to show the locals some respect. But, you know, they love their music so much and enjoy sharng it so much they wouldnt mind if they thought you couldnt afford a tie.

Have fun. Its worth it.

Re: What to wear to the opera

by Beausoleil

The poster originally asked if a regular coat and tie would be acceptable or if he needed black or white tie. The answer seems to be that his coat and tie would be acceptable. Sometimes we make too much of all these things. LOL

Travel Tips for Budapest

Budapest Card

by SkiBunni

Get a Budapest Card. Available at the train stations and various other places Im sure. Saves you a fair amount of money but the best thing is the book that goes with it. Great resource. Decent maps and darn near every tourist thing you can think of as well as whether or not they accept the Budapest Card and how much of a discount it gets you. Comes in 7 different languages. I got the 72 hour card for 5900Ft. Oh, and includes all local public transit. Very convenient. And the transit authorities were out full force when I was there.

Inside the fabulous Józsefvárosi church

by 1courage

The church has only one nave, but what a nave! Huge and richly decorated!Surely one of my favourites, most of all the altar painting wich is the second biggest in Hungary (the biggest is the one in the Basilica of Esztergom wich is the largest of the world).
The big flood in 1838 has severly damaged this church and destroyed more than 800 houses nearby. You can see today only few of the original late baroque-classical paintings. In fact, they were overpainted in neobaroque style at the millenary celebrations. The internal decorations that you see today were made mostly Igác Roskovics (1891-1895).

The Cave Church. This church...

by chrissyalex

The Cave Church. This church is very cool and unique inside. It is located on the Southern slope of Gellert Hill and has a copy of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa. There is also a beautiful granite altar.

Szentendre

by grkboiler

Szentendre is a small town on the Danube located 25 km from Budapest. It has some museums, some Orthodox churches, and plenty of souvenir shops and restaurants. It was built up over several generations of Serbian and Greek refugees escaping Ottoman rule. Visit my Szentendre page for more.

If you take the HEV line from Batthyany ter, you will get to Szentendre in about a half hour.
