Great show. Nice little theatre. We booked the cheap seats in the balcony but as no one was sitting in the 6 chairs at the front, we took them and had the best seats in the house! Great musicians and the dancers were superb. It would have been better if they could have let us know the names of the tunes and story of the dances but that's only a minor criticism. I recommend it.

Yes it is a major tourist drawcard, but it is well worth the experience! The dancers were highly energetic, showed off great hand/feet coordination and were fun to watch. The Hungarian music was enjoyable too. If you're looking for a quick taste of of Hungarian folk dance and music - this is the choice for you. I would recommend choosing the stalls and not the balcony if you can help it (Category 1). The view is slightly better.

Incredible presentation...

This was a great representation of the folk music of Hungary. The dancing was very different and the story lines were very clear and easy to understand. The musicians were incredible. The violinists all had an amazing techniques. The cimbalom or hammered dulcimer player was a concert virtuoso. All the music was memorized - amazing evening.
