Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohéme will open tonight at the Cave Theater in Fertőrákos. On Saturday, the threater will be showcasing The Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
La Bohéme is the production of the State Theater Košice, performed in original Italian with Hungarian subtitles. The Marriage of Figaro is co-produced by the National Theater of Győr and the National Theater of Szeged. It will be played in German, with Hungarian subtitles.
The Cave Theater is a popular location for summer shows. Transformed from a quarry in 1970, it became a bedrock of Hungarian popular culture, entertainment, comedy and theatre in the course of the past few decades.
After a thorough renovation in 2015, it has been welcoming as many as 750 visitors per night with state-of-the-art stage designs and technology, numerous bars and a record-sized stage.
