What To Expect
Celebrate the new year in the style of the 19th century! Budapest shows its prestige on the 31st December with this unique program combination. The event is a combination of a delicious 5 course gala dinner with a specially and carefully selected menu, a New Year's Eve Gala Concert performed by one of the most famous Hungarian symphonic orchestras, professional ballet dancers, operetta singers and folk musicians and completed by a splendid standing reception in ballroom atmosphere with a multi cultural crowd. The reception includes open bar with unlimited drink consumption and traditional Hungarian New Year's dinner.
There are also different options to choose from if you do not wish to attend the complete evening.
The program takes place in one of Budapest Downtown's most distinguished theatre buildings, the Pesti Vigadó. The building itself is of great importance, due to its role in the birth of today's capital, as it was the host of the meeting where the mayoralty of the three main parts of the city declared unity. Predecessor to the Vigadó of Pest, the Redoute, opened its doors in 1833 as a masterpiece of Classicism. Being the only concert hall in the capital at the time, artists like Strauss, Erkel and Liszt played there; so the Pesti Vigadó is the proper location to greet and celebrate the New Year.
Join to have the New Year's Eve of your life!
As program starter, we would like to invite you to our Gala Dinner beginning at 19:00.
Do not worry about table reservations for New Year's Eve, enjoy a full service Gala Dinner in the beautiful restaurant hall of the Pesti Vigado! The Gala Dinner features a 5 course meal, selected and prepared exclusively for this event.

The two hours long Gala Concert starts at 22:00 in the theatre hall, preparing New Year's celebration.
There is no better way to greet the coming year than listening to some great classical music from composers known worldwide in a prestigious environment. In preparation for the New Year's celebration, the Budapest Gala Orchestra leads the grandiose concerto, in cooperation with professional ballet dancers serving as confirmation to the fact that music and dance is inseparable. The program includes operetta songs performed by soloists of the world-famous Budapest Operetta Theatre. In addition to all, we took the opportunity to include some unique elements into the program; well known evergreens on a traditional Hungarian folk instrument, the cimbalom, and Hungarian folk song adaptation performed by talented gypsy band.
