Fun Facts about Danube Palace building
The program takes place in one of Budapest Downtown’s most distinguished theatre buildings, the Danube Palace. The former casino of Lipótváros was built between 1883 and 1885, in beautiful Neo-Baroque style by the plans of Vilmos Freund. At that time it was known as the aristocratic club for entertainment not a casino in terms of gambling. Until the beginning of World War II the Palace served as the cultural hub of Budapest supported by several young artists such as Bartók, Kodály and Dvorák who performed in its first class concert hall.
The Budapest Gala Orchestra leads the grandiose concerto, in cooperation with professional ballet dancers. The program includes a wide array of classical music pieces, operas, operetta songs performed by soloists of the world-famous Budapest Operetta Theatre. In addition to all, there will be some unique elements in the programme, such as some well known evergreen songs played on a traditional Hungarian folk instrument, the Hammered Dulcimer (Cimbalom) performed by a talented Hungarian gypsy band.
