#thisisyourplace At The Budapest Spring Festival For A Month

By Robert Velkey // 2017.04.03.

There is no place that spring doesn’t reach. This is both a metaphorical and literal characteristic of the Budapest Spring Festival, currently being held throughout the Hungarian capital. There will be dozens of venues in 2017: in addition to the Müpa Budapest and Liszt Academy, the Hungarian State Opera, the Bálna Budapest, the Vigadó, the Budapest Music Center, Várkert Bazár (Castle Garden Bazaar), other Budapest theatres, cultural institutes and museums will also be home to outstanding events.

The 37th Budapest Spring Festival, between 31 March – 23 April, awaits visitors with a programme that involves many of the arts, with events in classical music, opera, jazz, world music, dance, contemporary circus, theatre and the visual arts. With the best Hungarian performers and real world stars, the Budapest Spring Festival is a truly special occasion, presenting premieres and co-productions with partner institutions.

Organized once again in a cooperation between the Müpa Budapest, the Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre, and Hungarian Tourism Agency, the event series continues to broaden its offer by involving the leading cultural institutions of the city.
