Budapest Spring Festival to be bigger than ever

Each year guests on deluxe river cruises in Europe are privy to some extraordinary displays of talent from Hungarian musicians when the Budapest Spring Festival takes place at the end of March. This year, the festival will be held between the 21st March and the 6th April and will see 172 classical, contemporary, pop music and dance events take place across 58 venues in what will be the 34th edition of this famous showcase. 

From classical to jazz

The Budapest Spring Festival will feature world class musicians and artists at renowned venues, covering the genres of classical music, opera, jazz and folk. The festival is prized for the diversity of its music and arts programme, with spectators having the opportunity to watch amazing live theatre as well as the most beautiful of classical orchestral performances.

The Budapest Opera is due to perform its first recital of Parsifal and Rigoletto this year, and the Hungarian National Theatre will play host to several captivating plays. In addition to celebrating the talent of Hungary’s musicians, dancers and actors, the festival will also be marking the 133rd anniversary of the great Hungarian musician Béla Bartók with a special concert by the National Philharmonic Orchestra on the 25th March at the Palace of Arts.

The festival will play host to both Hungarian and international performers in line with its diverse offerings and will feature famous names including Philip Glass, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta, a guest exhibition by Florence’s Uffizi Gallery and the Madách Imre International Theatre Meeting.
