Add this event to your Google Calendar.
Draw your swords! Valiant Hungarians battling their Turkish and German foes, courage and duels, heroic raids and burning love. These are the subjects of The Testament of Aga Koppanyi, a definative experience for many of us Hungarians both in book and cinematic form. All of this is, however, serves only as a starting point for the Hungarian National Dance Ensemble's dance drama intended especially for young people in which history and the reality of the modern era meet in a theatre-within-a-theatre production, and where the characters alternate between adventuring in the distant past and the world of today.
This production of the Liszt Fest is presented by Müpa Budapest as a joint event with the Hungarian National Dance Ensemble.
