New Year's Greeting @ Palace Of Arts, 5 January
The birth of the Saviour is a joyful celebration throughout the Christian world. In this performance, the carriers of the long-awaited Good News bring the angels' message to their homes across the Carpathian Basin, causing the people to break into dance.

Hungary's thousand-year-old Christian tradition still includes some remnants of our pagan habits from before we adopted Christianity, which appear as little gems of folk belief in different moments of the production.

In this production, the Bartina Folk Dance Association, winners of the Fölszállott a páva talent show, will show symbols of anticipation and renewal through their customs revolving around the grape harvest.

This colourful programme will also show the beliefs of ethnic minorities in Hungary in the forms of the customs of the Mohács region and those of the Palóc-Slovaks. Making this evening authentic will be musicians and dancers dedicated to preserving Hungarian folk traditions.

HUF 2,300 - 5,900

Date and time:
Sunday, 5 January, 7:30 pm
