    Hungarian State Opera House.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Opera House

    Favorite thing: Andrassy Ut n. 22.

    You just cannot miss it. It is one of the most beautiful buildings of Budapest. If not the most beautiful one and one of the most loved by the people of the city.

    The opera in Budapest is not, as in the UK, an elitist way of entertainment and in fact, that is reflected in the prices, a lot cheaper than in the UK but with the same or better quality.

    I realise that here the people goes to the opera as often as we would go to the cinema and of course, I guess they will be a lot more in the know that we are. Good for them ! If I lived here I would come every week too!!

    Fondest memory: Do not miss a chance to come to the opera. Treat yourself, you won't regret it.

    My A Walkur Ticket...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Who else would keep such a thing ?

    Fondest memory: This is my A Walkur ticket !
    Keeping this as a memory for that memorable night at the Opera House in Budapest with a truly wonderful French friend Alain.
    On the ticket, you can see the venue, the time, the seat & the price of the show, but I saw it for free anyway...

    A Walkur...

    by coceng Updated Apr 28, 2004

    Fondest memory: This is the text of A Walkur ! I read everything in it which made me understand the performance/story better !
    It was the 2nd copy for me because the first one was stolen when I went to take my drink !
    As you can see from the above photo...

    by coceng Written Apr 28, 2004

    Fondest memory: Here on these photos, I shall share with you guys some amazing first time experiences for me seeing the Classical performances !
    It was great !
    My host Alain accompanied me in the 2 Opera Theaters that he took me.
    My last photo at The Magyar Allami Operahaz.
    This was when the performers bowing to the audience ...it was a success with the standing ovation !

    This was taken outside the Opera House, there's a nice balcony which captured me eyes.
    There's a guy just standing there actually so I had to wait for him to go in before taking this nice photo...

    This is me ! Holding my drink to Alain (he took this photo !) for such a great night out !
    I had put my Walkur text on a sofa near where this photo was taken; After that, when I turned back to the sofa to get it it was gone !
    I was so angry why would people took it or rather steal it !
    Alain said, "This is Budapest !".
    Whatever that could mean...
    Alain had to buy me a new one...

    This was during the break time of the performance; We can buy something to eat or drinks...& discuss the show maybe for about 1/2 hour.
    The photo is showing Alain who's lining up to get me a drink !

    My host Alain accompanied me in the 2 Opera Theaters that he took me.
    Then, Alain took me to another classical performance ! Not on the same night of course...
    The performance was called A Walkur, by Richard Wagner.
    The photo was taken inside the hall, quite different than the previous hall, don't you think ?

    An Opera Performance...

    It was great !
    My host Alain accompanied me in the 2 Opera Theaters that he took me.
    This is a photo of me & Alain, asking somebody to take our photo infront of the painting as the photo above ! Too bad that my cheap camera couldn't really capture the whole atmosphere...it was slightly dark, but you could see us anyway.

    My host Alain accompanied me in the 2 Opera Theaters that he took me.
    Again, another photo I took from sitting on my seat !
    This photo was the the pipes & the chandeliers just on top of the stage, in the background.
    Alain was explaining everything but I was more in awe looking at the beautiful ambience around me !

    At the same theater (if anybody knows the name of it, do let me know okay), the place mesmerized me ! So beautiful ! You can see the balcony where people were sitting...Just like the scenario in a movie where people watching a classical show !

    I am no opera fan but sooner or later I would discover it anyway, thanks to friends; We learn new things from friends right?
    In Budapest, I got a free ticket seeing the performance of an opera. First at this theater where people were singing (with that great big voice !), standing like Pavarotti...The photo shows the end of the show where the performers bowing down to the audience...
