THE LEGEND GOES ON – ECSER WEDDING DANCE 60TH ANNIVERSARY

 HUNGARIAN  STATE FOLK ORCHESTRA

ECSER WEDDING DANCE

AND

DREAMTIME

Festive Gala at 8 p.m. August 18.

 

Come and spend a lovely summer breezy evening to the Margaret Island by ship !

At the Margaret Island’s open-air stage will be holding  its  60th anniversary of the Hungarian State Folk Orchestra  with  the performance of the legendary and worldwide known Ecser Wedding Dance.

This show will be a single time only.

The  Hungarian  State  Folk Orchestra will be completed with  the Szolnok Symphony Orchestra and  the  Béla Bartók  Chamber Choir.  This  jubilation festive  gala  stands of  two parts. Will start off  with its first production drifting way back to  the early 50′s:  Ecser Wedding Dance. After the break, the second part will continue bringing on stage the company’s  latest production: Dreamtime. Throughout the six decades the music of the Hungarian  State  Folk Orchestra continuously kept the light on staying within the folklore musical genre.  These two shows will bring alive the past and present  of the  Hungarian  State  Folk Orchestra’s  60 years.

Ecser, is a name of a Hungarian village.  The town’s name  is an existing name since the 16th century and settlements started in the 19th century.  The tale says,  the name of the village was  in relation with an oak tree (in Hungarian “cserfa”).

Just a peak into the Ecser Wedding Dance. In the past and still  to-day in general, the young ones only have the oportunity to get acquainted with friends at/during these country folks  marriage-making  gatherings, national holidays or at  balls.

As to the Dreamtime, it’s the folk orchestra’s latest production. It unifies the postmodern pop with the traditional music. Within the dances you can recognize the association of emotions, thoughts, identities of  to-day’s modern personal and fellowship of man.

It will be a splendid production to be seen, but if you wish to higher the level for this evening then take a boat-ride to the Margaret Island and view the awesome evening lights on Budapest’s attractions.  Rolling on the River Danube to the port of the open-air theater is reachable in a short time.

Wishing you all an evening you will remember.

You bet I will,  I wouldn’t want to miss this grand production.
