Malkovich to Star in Budapest Musical Comedy Performance with Full Orchestra
Two-time Oscar award nominee John Malkovich will give a big orchestra version of the classical music comedy The Music Critic at the Erkel Színház on October 2.

The production had its first night showing in 2017 – then only with a chamber ensemble accompaniment – and since then it has been a hit in several parts of the world.

On October 2 not just a few musicians but an expanded full symphony orchestra will engage in a musical debate with Malkovich at the enlarged and reworked version of the work.

The nearly two-hour performance with the Óbuda Danubia Orchestra will feature works by such composers as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Schumann, Debussy, Prokofiev, Ysaye, Kancheli, Piazzolla and Alexsey Igudesman, who created the work.

The Budapest version of the touring production will have Hungarian-language subtitles.

Malkovich has performed several times on stage in Hungary.
