Christian Carnival – 22 February 2020

On 22 February 2020, the Opera will be once again holding its most elegant event at the Erkel Theatre. This year, in our “Christian Spirit Season", we have selected episodes for the programme that draw from the Judeo-Christian roots of European opera and ballet culture and/or are enriched by ancient Greek or Roman culture. Following in the footsteps of Vesselina Kasarova, Angela Gheorghiu, Plácido Domingo, Ildebrando D'Arcangelo, Roberto Alagna, Aleksandra Kurzak and Sonya Yoncheva, the guest of honour at this year’s carnival gala will be Georgian soprano Nino Machaidze, her first time taking the stage at the Hungarian State Opera.
