Could you please tell me the way to the Erkel Theatre?” asked a girl at the Keleti Railway Station one day in January 1988. Gyöngyi Lukács was studying in Moscow at the time, but happened to be at home in Győr for the holidays when she was called to jump in to sing in a performance of Il trovatore at the Erkel. She was 20 years old at the time, and this dramatic-spinto soprano role marked the – dazzlingly early – start of her career. Now, to summarise the 30 years that have passed since then, which have also brought her acclaimed engagements all over the world, a Kossuth Prize and even a published autobiography, the artist has chosen her own programme for a gala concert that will also feature other world-famous singers like Marcello Giordani and Alexandru Agache.
The evening will feature excerpts from Bellini's Norma, Verdi's Aida and Un ballo in maschera and Ponchiella's La Gioconda
