"A small touch of old Hungary"

This show is mainly for tourists, but nevertheless is enjoyable, and gives a taste of times-gone-by in Hungary. The musicians and the dancers are superb. The music includes gypsy music and the skills of the musicians are sometimes unbelievable; the dances are energetic and rivetting. The Duna Palota theatre evokes memories of the Hapsburg Empire and grandeur. Well worth the time and the ticket (I paid about 6000HUF or $28).

I like their dance/folk very Hungarian's traditional. I can gain insight into the folk music, dance, and costume heritage of Hungary.

"Best time ever!!!"

Even though we are Croatian, this was our first trip to Hungary and Budapest, since we have been living in Canada for a long time. I met my wife while doing folk dancing, and a folklore concert in Budapest was an absolute must on our list. After a pleasurable stroll through the streets close to the theater, we got in and found our seats from the tickets that we acquired earlier. The theater is beautiful, old, the seats are comfortable and it was not full. The orchestra was just phenomenal, these guys have done for so long they did not use the music sheets. The entire program was just delightful, explosive, the dancers were perfect, costume changes, everything to us was just pure pleasure.After a tremendous applause and a standing ovation, we gathered outside form a short walk to the boat that took us on a 2 hour long cruise alongside both banks. All the major monuments and building were lit and it was a visual feast.
Obviously it will always be a bit windy, bring some long sleeve garments. We skipped the dinner due to the late hour.
Overall - Excellent value for your money - no complaints of any kind. Excellent work guys!!!!!

Want to see Hungarian folk dance? The real stuff? They are definitely the ones to see. Sometimes it's not them performing in their main venue, but whoever is there is worth seeing

“lovely evening, with lovely music and lovely dancing.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

to get to theater is not easy... to make it easy, go to st stephan church, walk in the street in front of the main entrance of the church, 50 meters before the end of the street, you will find the theater,( to your left ), It does not look as a theater, it looks as an entrance of a small hotel !!!. You will spend about 2 hours with "energetic music and strong way of dancing". A night will always remind you of the charming Budapest.

"Swinging show"
Aug 3, 2012  A TripAdvisor Member

In a beautiful old building, we have long enjoyed an evening of traditional Hungarian dance and music. 15 really very different tracks with a break halfway through. Both the music and the ensemble dancers were very enthusiastic and have a good night put down. The hall was almost full. It was no problem to the show at the last minute to book the hotel. That's fine, because then you do not risk going there and it sold out.
