What happens when a singing circle operating according to classical middle-class values is forced to accept a talented but depraved and penniless musician? Primeval, genuine emotions break the through bars of false convention. Or do they? This is the theme of The Tenor, the most celebrated Hungarian comic opera of the 1930s.

Ernő Dohnányi and Ernő Góth's uproarious comedy is given a new look – recalling the colourful worlds of operetta and Bollywood and turning the performance into a dream-like carousel. Our young artists revel in these exquisite character roles under the expert direction of András Almási-Tóth.
