Christmas Concert – Audience Choice Programme

“There was a moment when it seemed an angel passed through the hall,” wrote a member of the audience after the BFO’s christmas concert last year. Another commenter said the performance was “the best Christmas present.” Iván Fischer will bring the same gift this year, and while the packaging may be familiar, the contents are always unknown, never boring, and always determined by the wishes of the audience.

The members of the Budapest Festival Orchestra are the most multifaceted musicians in Hungary – and perhaps in the world. Apart from being outstanding orchestral musicians, they also perform in chamber formations of the highest quality and often appear before the audience as soloists. They approach Baroque, classical and contemporary music with the same level of professionalism, and are also no strangers to jazz or folk music. They know everything there is to know about their own instruments, and are able to enchant and capture the attention of everyone from children who are complete newcomers to music to seasoned aficionados of the classics. They also hold their own as a choir, so their musical toolbox is, in a word, simply unlimited. Just as Iván Fischer’s ideas, creativity and enthusiasm know no limits. The purpose of the christmas concert is to allow the audience to share in all these miracles.

This is an evening where anything can happen. The audience will have a role in determining the programme, so the concert will be custom-tailored to its listeners. Of course, there will also be surprises in store, which Iván Fischer will handle. As he puts it: “This concert is like a wrapped gift, as when a child announces ahead of time what they would like for Christmas, but at the same time, of course, they also want to be surprised.” At this concert the audience will get both.

The holiday concert will also mark an anniversary: the BFO made its debut at the Liszt Academy at Christmas in 1983, which was when the Grand Hall became available. It is through this coincidence that perhaps the orchestra’s most beautiful tradition was born, which continues to bring warmth to the hearts of music lovers year after year during the holiday season.

What does this button do? An evening with Bruce Dickinson – Featuring Q&A




Live Nation announces a special one-man speaking show by IRON MAIDEN singer, BRUCE DICKINSON in Budapest on November 2nd, 2019.

Bruce Dickinson is considered one of the world’s most storied musicians. Aside from decades spent delivering high-octane performances with his larger-than-life persona in IRON MAIDEN, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too. A true polymath, Bruce is, or has been, an airline pilot and captain, an aviation entrepreneur, a beer brewer, motivational speaker, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist and best-selling author, radio presenter, TV actor and international fencer.

The 2017 publication of his New York Times & UK Times Best-Seller autobiography What Does This Button Do? saw Bruce promoting the book by undertaking a small number of readings and Q&A in theatres around the UK. What Does This Button Do?An Evening With Bruce Dickinson has since evolved into a full-blown one-man show, more akin to a stand-up comedian’s routine, lasting well over two hours and touring the globe to critical acclaim, including a sold-out performance last summer at the largest arts festival in the world, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Split into two parts, the first half of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous, often satirical look back at his colourful, roller-coaster life. Delivering compelling tales in his uniquely anarchic style and punctuated with photographs, he recounts anecdotes not just from the book, but others deemed either too risqué or otherwise to have made the final edit…..!

The second half of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, where fans’ quirky, frank and often completely leftfield questions are tackled with completely improvised – and invariably quick-witted – responses by Bruce, all of which makes for a highly entertaining and enjoyable night out.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to witness one of the world’s most captivating icons in an intimate environment when Bruce Dickinson brings his one-man speaking show for the very first time to Budapest. Tickets are now available via and

The show will be in English language!
