We will be in Budapest Sept. 26 or 27 (a bit flexible) through October 1 and would like to find one or two cultural events. We especially like classical music and opera. I understand that the opera house is closed for renovations, and I have been to the website for the Erkel Theater, where operas and concerts are taking place.
I also found this page, for Hungarian folk shows, which might be something interesting and different:
Regarding classical music, I didn't find any operas playing but I found the following page on the Erkel website, with no information on what is playing other than "symphonic evenings:"
The page doesn't say what's on the program and I don't see a way of getting further information. Then when you click on ticket information, it takes you to a page of events that ends at June 30 and starts up again for October 20, skipping ticket sales for July/August/September entirely. This is extremely weird.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Also, if anyone has been to the Hungarian folk show please let me know if you thought it was worthwhile and also whether we need to buy tickets soon/if they are likely to sell out.
