Gala Concert New Years Budapest

Greet the New Year in the style of the 19th century! Budapest shows its prestige on the 31st of December, presenting an absolute and entire night program on our New Year’s Gala!

The program takes place in one of Budapest Downtown’s most distinguished theatre buildings, the Pesti Vigadó. The building itself is of great importance, due to its role in the birth of today’s capital, as it was the host of the meeting where the mayoralty of the three main parts of the city declared unity. Predecessor to the Vigadó of Pest, the Redoute, opened its doors in 1833 as a masterpiece of Classicism. Being the only concert hall in the capital at the time, artists like Strauss, Erkel and Liszt played there; so the Pesti Vigadó is the proper location to greet and celebrate the New Year.

Tickets are available separately, in multiple options:
  • Full night event (5 course gala dinner, 1st category concert seat, salon reception)
  • Gala Dinner and Gala Concert (5 course gala dinner, 1st category concert seat)
  • Gala Concert and Salon reception (1st category concert seat, salon reception)
  • 1st category concert seat only

22:00 – Gala Concert

The two hours long Gala Concert starts at 22:00 in the theatre hall, preparing New Year’s celebration. There is no better way to greet the coming year, than listening to some great classical music, from composers known worldwide, in a prestigious environment. In preparation for the New Year’s celebration, the Budapest Gala Orchestra leads the grandiose concerto, in cooperation with professional ballet dancers serving as confirmation to the fact that music and dance is inseparable. The program includes operetta songs performed by soloists of the world-famous Budapest Operetta Theatre. In addition to all, we took the opportunity to include some unique elements into the program; well known evergreens on a traditional Hungarian folk instrument, the cimbalom, and Hungarian folk song adaptation performed by talented gypsy band.
