Three hundred and fifty singers, dancers, and musicians from the Hungarian State Opera will take over Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater for two weeks when the Hungarian State Opera and Hungarian National Ballet make their U.S. debuts in programs featuring four U.S. premieres.

The first week is devoted to opera by Hungarian composers, and among the four operas to be performed are two U.S. premieres—Ferenc Erkel’s Bánk bán, considered Hungary’s national opera, and János Vajda’s contemporary opera Mario and the Magician. Additionally, Béla Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle is performed in celebration of 100 years since its world premiere by the Hungarian State Opera, and Karl Goldmark’s rarely seen The Queen of Sheba is fully staged in New York for the first time since 1906, when it was performed at the Metropolitan Opera House. The second week, devoted to ballet, features the U.S. production premieres of Swan Lake and Don Quixote, plus a program of contemporary dance classics by Hans van Manen.
