With no little humour, the emboldened horses pulling a sleigh, the fierce snowball battles and the paired ice dancers make up the Nativity procession, one of the most popular mystery plays of the Christmas period, where all participants in this magical journey come together at the end of the performance to experience together sincere joy at the arrival of the Redeemer, the incarnation of the Son of God.
The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble's advent dance drama in seven parts (Hótündérek tánca; Csusszan a szánkó; HTT - Hóemberek Titkos Találkozója; Csilingelő lovas szán; Süssünk, süssünk valamit; Szabad-e bejönni ide betlehemmel?; Jaj, de szép a karácsonyfa) create a genuine festive atmosphere, bringing us closer to the secrets of Christmas and reminding us of that childhood joy of anticipation. This performance is recommended for families.
The concert will include an excerpt from the poem Hóhullásban (In Snowfall) by Anna T. Szabó.
The première is a co-production of Müpa Budapest, Hungarian State Folk Ensemble and the Hungarian Heritage House.
