Budapest Dance Festival Hosts 9 Premieres For Grand Opening Of New Venue
The Budapest Dance Festival will feature nine premieres and altogether 24 shows between February 15 and March 2 at the new National Dance Theatre in Budapest’s Millenáris Park, organisers said.

Also, Swiss choreographer Philippe Saire will stage a performance for children and one for adults. French Company Wang Ramirez, whose contemporary performances draw on hip-hop, will perform for the first time in Hungary.

Győr Ballet and the Hungarian Academy of Music’s orchestra will open the festival with a piece on Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 and PianoPlays, a performance inspired by the music of Wagner and Liszt, organisers said.
