Very good performance, very good quality musical ensemble, dancers with communicative energy! 1h30 of show with a short intermission. On the other hand, I didn't really understand the categories, nothing is noted on the seats, and it's a bit the first one who enters who sits where he wants... so it seems useless to pay the full price, d as we can see the scene very well from everywhere in this small room. To see of course if they occur elsewhere! Very good time for us (14 to 83 years old!)

Amazing experience. The theater wasn’t full so J got to sit in the front rows despite buying a category 3 ticket. A must see if you want to experience an authentic Hungarian show! The dancers/musicians were so lively & kept me entertained throughout.

Lovely concert in an absolutely stunning setting! Only negative if I had to give one was the seating was a tad uncomfortable, but for the sake of a hour it was fine. Loved it ❤️

Beautiful music, beautiful setting, a wonderful, calming, glorious evening! Highly recommended!

This is so incredible! I loved it. Offered to myself as birthday gift. No regrets at all.
