Programmes for our 20th autumn

Starting in September 2024, we will once again be welcoming visitors with world-renowned ensembles, star soloists, the very best of Hungary’s artistic world and our own popular festivals.

In keeping with our traditions, we will once again be bidding farewell to summer with jazz: Nikoletta Szőke, Bálint Gájer and the Danubia Orchestra will perform a joint concert at the JazzTime Festival, Orsi Kozma will be serving up the songs of Hungarian pop divas, and Spain’s Andrea Motis will be dazzling the audience in partnership with the Krisztián Csapó Quintet. The Bridging Europe thematic festival launched by the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Müpa Budapest in 2013 will this year be tempting the finest artists to Budapest from Brussels. The concerts by the Brussels Jazz Orchestra & Philip Catherine, Bert Joris, David Linx, Zap Mama, Selah Sue, Gaïsha and TaxiWars will be supplemented by an exhibition and screenings of cult films with connections to Belgian. The legendary American jazz drummer Brian Blade will perform here for the first time with his own formation Fellowship Band, while the hall will resound with powerful female energy at the Les Amazones D’Afrique concert. 

Ádám Fischer will celebrate his 75th birthday, while the Talamba Percussion Group and Vujicsics Ensemble will be marking their 25th and 50th anniversaries respectively at Müpa Budapest. Ton Koopman, who turns 80 this year, will also be stopping by with his ensembles as part of a jubilee tour. In its concert entitled Cinema Trip, Honeybeast will illuminate the evening with projections that create a 3D effect, and Hiperkarma’s acoustic gig will see the group’s songs played in chamber music arrangements. 
The Philip Glass Ensemble will give two concerts, and we will remember the recently deceased Péter Eötvös with a one-off concert worthy of his remarkable body of work. 

Recognised as one of the world’s oldest ensembles, the Staatskapelle Dresden arrives with new artistic director Daniele Gatti, while one of the Müpa Budapest audience’s favourite conductors, Philippe Herreweghe , returns at the helm of his own ensembles. Hilary Hahn, Mikko Franck and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France will show three faces of the romantic, and the Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge will help set the advent mood in the run up to Christmas. Barnabás Kelemen and Ferenc Snétberger will be the artists of the season, so the audience will be able to meet them both on several occasions in the coming months.  

There will once again be no shortage of dance and contemporary circus performances in the autumn and winter months, when Balett Pécs will be introducing its new dance drama Faust, the Damned to the Budapest audience, while our Recirquel productions will continue to include IMA, as well as the brand new Paradisum, which will be exploring the myth of rebirth from October. Szaffi will be performed as part of the Opera Matinée series, with The Flavours of Europe appearing among the Matinée Concerts, and the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble’s colourful Wonderful Nativity dance play sure to enchant young and old.

In keeping with the institution’s traditions, members of the Müpa+ membership programme are the first to get the opportunity to pre-purchase tickets. Platinum-level members will be able to pre-purchase tickets for the announced programmes starting from 10 am on 24 April, with Gold-level members joining in at the same time on Thursday the 25th, followed by Silver-level members later that same day at 2 pm.
