Year after year the arrival of spring is brought to Europe by the Budapest Spring Festival. Apart from the rich musical choices, unique exhibitions, excellent dance shows and a busy festival atmosphere awaits the visitors. The largest and most prestigious cultural festival in Budapest attracts many musicians so we have plenty of classical music, opera and jazz fans from all around the world.
More than 200 events
If you have planned to travel to the beautiful Hungarian capital between March 19th and April 5th, when the Spring Festival takes place, you must know you could choose among more than 200 activities. To avoid driving yourself crazy, we are going to make a selection of the best acts.
With regards to classical music and opera events, we recommend the orchestral concert of Joshua Bell and the Camerata Salzburg in the Palace of Arts Béla Bartók National Concert Hall on March 20th. Another must see act is Puccini’s ‘Turandot’ that will be performed on March 22nd and on March 28th in the Hungarian State Opera House.
If you are a theatre lover, you must go to see the ‘King Liar’ premiere, on March 19th in the National Theatre. There you’ll also have the opportunity to assist to Luk Perceval’s play ‘The truth about the Kennedy’s’, based on contemporary documents revisiting key episodes in the 160-year history of the Kennedy family, presenting the rise and fall of a mythical dynasty as a contemporary “royal drama”.
In the dance section, you can not miss an appointment with the best flamenco from the Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía featuring Cristina Hoyos, who will perform ‘El poema del cante jondo’, based on works by Federico García Lorca.
Ideally you should just submerge yourself into the extensive programme and choose what suits you most. This is the perfect combination to enjoy one of the most beautiful European cities in the nicest season.
