  • Beautiful theater to assist for an opera play. They usually have a display with English and hubgarian translations, which make it more appealing. Places are comfortable but the best part is they have lot of leg room
  • We were on a short visit to Budapest and decided to take see an opera at the Erkel Theater. The venue was spectacular, the performance was exceptional, and the price was reasonable. Hint: The Erkel Theater did not seem to enforce a strict dress code -- there were plenty of tourists mingled into the crowd wearing NY Yankees hats and ripped blue jeans ... I reccomend dressing a little bit nicer - a pair of slacks/pants/a skirt it will be appreciated and you will make the visit feel a little more special.
