No Age Limit

The most exclusive operetta concert experience at one the of most exclusive venues in Doha!

The audience will be entertained by the legendary melodies of the second well-known Hungarian – after soccer player Ferenc Puskas –, Emmerich Kalman! They say, no minute goes by in the world without a melody of him, born 133 years ago, being heard either on stage, on television, on the radio, at a concert or gala. And most often, no doubt, it is the melodies of the The Csardas Princess (aka Die Csardasfürstin) one hears, the one with which the composer won the first place among leading composers of the era. And, in 2015, there’s a special occasion to celebrate the composer and his best piece: The Csardas Princess premiered exactly 100 years ago!

The concert will also feature the beloved melodies of other Kalman works, Countess Maritza, The Bayadere, The Circus Princess, etc. – and also songs by other popular Hungaria operetta composers, including Franz Lehár, Paul Ábrahám, Jenő Huszka, Albert Szirmai, in a genuine Viennese, Parisian, Oriental and obviously Hungarian spirit. The visuals of the show are made unique by breath-taking compositions and animated effects, while the organizers are planning to employ outstanding scenery, lighting and sound that fit a real high-scale theatrical show. The performing artists will be accompanied by Budapest Operetta and Musical Theatre’s symphonic orchestra, led by Krisztián Balassa, and the ballet ensemble.

This gala show, in the direction of KERO(R), will surely be one of the highlights of the year, with its exciting visuals, original concept and elegant atmosphere.
