Hungarian State Folk Ensemble - Gypsy Romance | Kingston Grand Theatre

Hungarian State Folk Ensemble - Gypsy Romance

The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, regarded as one of the greatest folkloric dance ensembles in the world, was established in 1951. Its aims were to collect and play authentic folk music, and to preserve the folk dances and traditional costumes of Hungary and Hungarian-inhabited areas by putting them on stage before the public.

During the more than four-and-a-half decades of its existence, the Ensemble has achieved its aim by revitalizing the culture of the Hungarian people. The Ensemble has performed in 44 countries across four continents and won the admiration of an audience of more than seven-and-a-half million people. The choreographies are all based on authentic dances, some of them collected in isolated villages with dance elements dating back hundreds of years. The extraordinary folk music that inspired Liszt, Bartk and Kodly is put on stage by both the Folk Orchestra and the worldfamous Gipsy Orchestra. The members of the Folk Orchestra play authentic, traditional instruments and perform Hungarian folk music at its highest artistic level.
