Are you also a fan of classical music? Then we’ve got good news for you: this summer, Müpa Budapest will be hosting a series of high-quality concerts. In June, both Hungarian and international artists will dazzle audiences on the Müpa’s stage. If you want to be part of this experience, you should get your tickets as soon as possible!
“No tickets to Bayreuth? Budapest has a Wagner Festival” was the headline of the New York Times’ rave review of the 2013 Budapest Wagner Days. Since then, much has been said and done, but the success of the Wagner Festival, the brainchild of Adam Fischer, remains unbroken – by audiences and critics alike. The miracle will, of course, still be there in June 2024.

The series of performances kicks off with a recital by the world-famous Danish baritone Bo Skovhus, who will select from the late Romantic gems of the intimate genre, performing pieces by Strauss, Schoenberg and Mahler alongside Wagner’s Wesendonck songs. His pianist partner will be the versatile Austrian musician Stefan Vladar.

The Ring tetralogy has been a fixture at the June festival for some time now, as the music drama, which draws on Germanic mythology, mirrors the world of today through the stories of gods and heroes. Once again, under Adam Fischer’s hands, Hartmut Schörghofer’s skilful direction comes to life, and over the course of the four evenings we are treated to such great singers as Iréne Theorin, who we listen to year after year as Brünnhilde, and Christian Franz, who also captivates audiences for the umpteenth time as Loge, and the list goes on and on, from Johan Reuter’s commanding Wotan to Karine Babajanyan’s emotional Sieglinde and Stefan Vinke’s mountain-moving Siegfried, to returning Hungarian artists such as Atala Schöck and Erika Gál.

Budapest Wagner Days 2024 will close with a programme that will serve as an introduction for those new to the composer’s works, but will also be a delight for dedicated fans, as Ádám Fischer will enchant audiences with the most popular Wagner pieces at the Gods and Heroes concert with the National Philharmonic Orchestra.

Venue: Müpa
Date: 14 – 29 June.
Price: 3900 – 5700 Ft
