You can listen to a special program which was compiled just for this evening by the Danube Chamber Orchestra, including well-known and popular works of famous composers.
Outside Hungary it sounds unusual to include a typical Hungarian folk instrument, the cimbalom to perform with a symphony orchestra, but in Hungary the beauty of this instrumental combination has been known since the 19th century. It is a unique opportunity to hear the most popular classics interpreted by the Danube Chamber Orchestra in the romantic spirit of Christmas. The Christmas Chamber Concert is the perfect way to embrace the holiday mood in Budapest.
The Chamber Concert starts at 20:00 consisting of two 35-40 minutes long parts with an intermission in between.
To top up your unforgettable chamber concert, upgrade it to a complete evening program with Danube Dinner Cruise! Let us invite you to a romantic candlelight dinner on the festive and comfortable ship. The Cruise starts at 22:00, but will always wait for the guests from the theater to arrive, escorted by our hosts and hostesses.
