Budapest Wagner Days 2024

    14 June 2024 - 29 June 2024

“No Tickets for Bayreuth? Budapest Has a Wagner Festival, Too.” So read the headline from the effusive 2013 New York Times review of the Budapest Wagner Days. A lot of water has flowed down the Danube since then, but the success of the Wagner festival conceived by Ádám Fischer remains – in the eyes of critics and the audience alike – unbroken. Naturally, we will get to marvel at this wonderful experience once again in June...

Müpa Film Club - Being Woody Allen

    2 October 2023 - 30 June 2024

Being Woody Allen

Although, when you consider that this is less than a third of Woody Allen's film output... Incredible. When did he even sleep? (I'm sure he would have a joke to make about the connection between insomnia and narcolepsy.) In 1950, he...
