Christmas at Budapest Opera House

In late November, the Budapest Opera has its huge Christmas tree standing in its luxurious hall at the lavishly decorated main stairway.

Luckily the Hungarian Opera House is open even at Christmas, and throughout December. This makes the Opera House one of the best Hungarian Christmas gifts. Getting a ticket for the Christmas performances is not easy, so do book in advance via online.

This is a short video of the La Bohéme performance at the Hungarian Opera House in Budapest in 2007, and we can only agree with one of the commenters of the video “Tokody is a national treasure of Hungary”. In 2012 on Dec 25 and Dec 26 you will not see Ilona Tokody as Mimi, but the opera performance will be beautiful nevertheless!:
