One of the most spectacular part of building the image of the Hungarian Opera House is the creation of the premier creatives.

Then the visual creatives give an impression, symbolic hints to the plays or show a preview of the stage scenery. They are intended to express the play’s style and message. Lot of variations are made from the approved “base creative”, online and offline as well. There are 22-28 premiers per […]

From the previous year’s surreal world the creators of Opera had stepped into the pure reality for the 16/17 season. In addition to the artists and the pieces they summon, the place itself is of great significance, since beside the Opera House and the Erkel Theater, the Eiffel Workshop-house which is under renovation can be seen.

Since opera and ballet also takes up other arts, this is how we came up with the idea and […]
