Müpa Winter Open Air
Endless winter experiences
Ice rink – contemporary circus – concerts
The run-up to the holidays would not be complete without Müpa Winter Open Air, and 2019 is no exception. This year, the events welcoming children and adults alike kick off on 30 November. Our enormous ice rink will again be open to the public, and the Müpa Tent will be hosting one incredibly exciting programme after another. Spend time with us again this year!
1 December 2019 – 2 February 2020
There’s no more liberating feeling this time of year than gliding across the ice without a care in the world. With around 350 square metres of surface area, our ice rink can accommodate as many as 80 skaters enjoying the icy joys at once, and naturally we will also provide the outstanding background music. A heated snack bar next to the rink will add to the relaxation by offering winter delicacies like mulled wine and hot chocolate.
30 November 2019 – 5 January 2020
Once again this year, we will be surprising visitors with magical winter experiences in the Müpa Tent. Returning with a renewed cast will be the Recirquel Contemporary Circus Company’s amazing contemporary circus fairy tale Kristály: a huge success last year, it features acrobats sweeping above the audience’s heads at a mere arm’s length away. Also joining us will be Kaláka, now 50 years old and a favourite of every generation, with their Advent programme Nativity to help everyone get into the holiday mood. The Benkó Dixieland Band, for their part, will show everyone what Christmas in Dixieland is like. One of Hungary’s most popular singers of folk and world music, Szilvia Bognár will bring her band, the Szilvia Bognár Sextet to guide us through a concert ranging from folk to jazz, and children receptive to the genre will also get to enjoy a concert by the Kokopelli Jazz Matinee. The Hahó Ensemble’s Advent eco-party will make the period of anticipation of the holiday an exciting one, and the soul- and funk-playing Blue Rabbit’s family show (Blue Rabbit Family) will finally give parents and children a chance to dance together. The Veronaki Band and Andi Malek and the EsZeMent MeseBand will both bring Christmas programmes, the Mesebolt Puppet Theatre will bring the tale of Mother Hulda to life, and the Harlekin Puppet Theatre will do the same with the story of the birth of Jesus.
