HUNGARIAN STATE OPERA HOUSE

Designed by Miklós Ybl, who also planned St.Stephen’s Basilica (Szent István Bazilika), the Hungarian State Opera opened in 1884,  the Opera is also home to the Hungarian National Ballet founded the same year.

Renovated and reopened in 2013, the formerly named People’s Opera once hosted the likes of Toscanini, Nijinsky and the Ballets Russes, Ella Fitzgerald and Béla Bartók. The Erkel Theatre has been operating under the same umbrella as the Opera House since 1951, and its current agenda features classical concerts, ballet, musicals and opera.

The performances of the Opera House quickly gained a reputation for excellence in a repertory of about 45 to 50 operas and about 130 annual performances.

ST. STEPHEN BASILICA

Budapest’s neoclassical cathedral is the most sacred Catholic church in all of Hungary and contains its most revered relic: the mummified right hand of the church’s patron, King St Stephen. It was built over half a century to 1905. Much of the interruption during construction had to do with a fiasco in 1868 when the dome collapsed during a storm, and the structure had to be demolished and then rebuilt from the ground up. The view from the dome is phenomenal.

The Saint Stephen Basilica has played an active role in the musical community since its consecration in 1905. The head organists of the church have always been very highly regarded musicians. In the past century, the Basilica has been home to choral music, classical music as well as contemporary musical performances.
