The Ensemble consists of 34 dancers, 14 members of the Gipsy Orchestra and 5 members of the Hungarian Folk Orchestra. The 5 members of the Folk Orchestra play authentic, traditional instruments and perform Hungarian folk music at its highest artistic level.

The choreographies are all based on authentic dances, some of them were collected in isolated villages with dance elements dating back hundreds of years. During the more than five decades of its existence, the Ensemble has achieved its aim by revitalizing the culture of the Hungarian people.

The extraordinary folk music that inspired Hungarian and international classical composers such as Liszt, Brahms, Kodály and Bartók is put on stage by both the Folk Orchestra and the world-famous Gipsy Orchestra, guided by the artistic director Oláh Jenő.

Their rich and colorful repertoire entitled the Ensemble to be regarded as one of the top touring groups in the world. It has performed in 44 countries across four continents and won the admiration of an audience of more than seven and a half million people. Aside from its performances around the country and abroad, the Ensemble gives approximately 90-100 annually performances in its Corvin tér theatre, in the Budai Vigadó. 

Dear Guests, please note that stage in the Budai Vigadó is 1 meter (approx. 3 feet) higher than the front rows. For this reason the seats in the front rows are 2nd category. Seating rows rise gradually, so from row 5 you can have the best view of the stage. Please click here for the folklore show sitting map.
