The year of revival: the Szeged Open Air Festival will be organized in a special form

Programmes of the season 2014 have been announced

Next year the greatest development in stage technique will be completed. The spectatos of Dóm Square can attend performances like ’Zorba’, ’The Czardas Queen’, ’Gone with the Wind’, ’Hary Janos’ and ’Mamma Mia’ in unique conditions. The press was informed about the changes and programmes on Tuesday by Herczeg Tamás director and Harangozó Gyula arts director.

Szeged is the only place to hear “Summertime” this summer
This August, the Szeged Open-Air Festival will be offering up a real treat to fans of opera, jazz and gospel music: the city’s Dóm Square will be the one venue in Europe to hear the classic melodies from Porgy and Bess – including the popular “Summertime”, which has inspired revision and reworking by countless jazz, pop and classical musicians over the years. George Gershwin’s opus, which has not been performed on Hungarian stages for decades, comes to Szeged audiences for two performances in a production by a New York-based opera company. 
Porgy and Bess and the Phantom of the Opera  at the Szeged Open-Air Festival
Three productions out of two: this is how the program of the Szeged Open-Air Festival was transformed, as it was told at a press conference held by the new management today. The Kung-Fu Legend dance show was replaced by a real opera rarity: Gershwin’s composition, Porgy and Bess is arriving from the United States. The Verdi-Wagner Gala was relocated into the repertoire of the Gift Concert, with Ilona Tokody and Mária Temesi in the leading roles. The audience can enjoy the musical-concert version of The Phantom of the Opera as a guest performance of the Madách Theatre.
