Artistic Director and Conductor: Ádám Fischer
Every year, this long-established series of events attracts Wagner fans from around the globe to Budapest. 2020 would not be complete again without the Ring cycle. Hartmut Schörghofer’s highly successful adaptation makes a comeback after being updated in 2019 with new choreography, redesigned stage movements, completely new background footage projected onto the stage props and with a new dramaturg joining the creative team. Even more exciting is the fact that the casts of the four evenings feature world-class singers not yet heard in these operas, while the loyal audience of the Ring will surely meet some old-time favourites, too. Just to mention a few names, we will have Johan Reuter, Zsolt Haja, Schöck Atala, Stefan Vinke, Gerhard Siegel, Walter Fink, and Irene Theorin. The great encore of the festival will include Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Waltraud Meier’s recital.
