An evening with Kálmán (Õhtu Kálmániga) 38
This time we will catch a glimpse of the works of one of the best-known operetta composers of the 20th century – Imre Kálmán. The Hungarian composer conquered both the demanding Vienna and the finicky Paris, as his favourite themes – love for one’s homeland, Gypsy life and the manners of the Gypsies, the life and intrigues of Parisian high society and Oriental themes – manifested in his works in their own characteristic way and touched the souls of audiences.
An Evening with Kálmán consists of four abridged operettas whose lustre, bright orchestration and warm and inventive melodies will make this evening spent at the theatre an unforgettable experience.
This evening is our way of thanking the audience!
