WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, regarded as one of the greatest folkloric dance ensembles in the world, returns to Chicago with their rich and colorful repertoire, all of which is based on authentic Hungarian dances. The extraordinary folk music that inspired Liszt, Bartók and Kodály is put on stage by both the Hungarian Folk Orchestra and the world-famous Gipsy Orchestra. "The New York Times" raves "It is marvelous - crackling with dancing that snaps like a whip in a program framed successfully by a sophisticated context."
