Benjamin Britten in Budapest - Hungarian guests in Aldeburgh
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
What does Wes Anderson's film Moonrise Kingdom have to do with Benjamin Britten? When did the composer first visit Budapest, and for which pair of Hungarian siblings did he write his Gemini Variations? Why was the 1970 première of his ballet The Prince of the Pagodas at the Budapest's State Puppet Theatre considered a sensation in many respects? We'll find out the answers for these and other questions as exhibition on display, as part of the Bridging Europe festival, between 15 September and 7 October, in Banner Square.
Curated by Tünde Topor, the exhibition uses materials from the Aldeburgh-based Britten-Pears Foundation, London's National Portrait Gallery, the MTVA Archives and the archives of Artmagazin.
