on the basis of Mór Jókai's novel
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
Wandering Gypsies leading adventurous lives and mean-spirited yet ridiculous nobles abusing their power are the main characters of the animated film Szaffi: this adaptation of Mór Jókai's classic novel The Gypsy Baron is by now well known by several generations. Also playing important parts in this exciting story brought to life with the melodies of Strauss are a treasure hidden during the decades of the Turkish occupation and the love between the charming title character and the penniless Jónás Botsinkay. But there's no reason to worry: everything turns out fine in the end.
Before the performance, between 9.45 and 10.30, we will be running a free (and playful) interactive session for children entitled Tune-up. We look forward to welcoming both school groups and individual school-age youngsters attending the subsequent performance. Please register via firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on the Wednesday before the performance, specifying the number of participating children and their ages. The activity is recommended for children aged 6 and over, and will take place with a minimum of six children.
