As part of the Hungarian government’s economic measures in relation to the war in Ukraine, the ministry maintaining the Hungarian State Opera House has reduced the theatre’s annual budget by 600 million HUF. Additionally, the recent increase in utility costs and unstable currency exchange rates have further burdened the theatre. The Hungarian State Opera has therefore reduced the number of performances previously announced for the 2022/2023 season, including all performances on the Eiffel Art Studios’ Miklós Bánffy Stage. However, all performances in the Opera House will go ahead as scheduled.
