Budapest’s Palace of Arts (Müpa) will reopen on June 24 with a program featuring artists such as Zubin Mehta and the Vienna Philharmonic this summer and the 2021-22 season, Csaba Káel, Müpa’s chief director told a press conference on Thursday.
Highlights of the program will include concerts by Denis Matsouev, Anoushka Shankar, and Pat Metheny, Káel said.
The summer season, which runs until July 5, will open “in the spirit of creativity, high quality, and renewal”, with a focus on “opera, chamber music, circus and jazz”, the director said.
The autumn season will “link Budapest with Berlin in the Bridges of Europe series” while Richard Strauss will be in the focus of a series of concerts in 2022, he said, highlighting also the György Cziffra memorial year and the traditional Wagner Days next year.
In the summer season, the facility will offer fewer seats with regard to social distancing, while concert goers will be required to present an immunity certificate and wear a mask indoors.
