HUNGARIAN STATE FOLK ENSEMBLENovember 07, 2013, 7:30 pm

"It is marvelous- crackling with dancing that snaps like a whip in a program framed successfully by a sophisticated context.”
—Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times
"It’s forceful, tasteful, unglorified presentation of ethnic expression...”
—George Jackson, Washington Post

The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, regarded as one of the greatest folkloric dance ensembles in the world, was established in 1951. Its aims were to collect and play authentic folk music and to preserve the folk dances and traditional costumes of Hungary and Hungarian-inhabited areas by putting them on stage before the public. During the more than four and a half decades of its existence, the Ensemble has achieved its aim by revitalizing the culture of the Hungarian people. Their rich and colorful repertoire entitles the Ensemble to be regarded as one of the top touring groups in the world.
