Everyone is well familiar with the name Bálint Gáyer, as he is the countries 'prince of swing' and the originator and leading figure of the Hungarian 'Swing'n Pop' musical style. He gave his first major Christmas concert in December 2017, when he introduced his Hungarian-language full-length album Swing Karácsony. Encouraged by the success of the sold-out concert and the one that followed the next year, he will be performing the best-known Christmas songs once again.
The songs performed by a ten-piece orchestra augmented by strings will show the hallmarks of Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé Let It Snow, White Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Last Christmas - all familiar sounds for the general public. These international hits, however, have only rarely been sung in Hungarian. Appearing as a guest at the concert will be Junior Prima Award-winner Nikoletta Szőke, the victor at the 2005 Montreux Jazz Competition and one of Hung...ary's most popular jazz singers, not to mention one of its most outstanding performers of jazz standards and scat.
The Müpa Budapest underground garage gates will be operated by an automatic number plate recognition system. Parking is free of charge for visitors with tickets to any of our paid performances on that given day. The detailed parking policy of Müpa Budapest is available here.
