About the Venue – Duna Palota/Danube Palace
The program takes place in one of Downtown Budapest‘s most distinguished theatre buildings, the Danube Palace. The former casino of Lipótváros was built between 1883 and 1885, in beautiful Neo-Baroque style by the plans of Vilmos Freund.
At that time it was known as the aristocratic club for entertainment not a casino in terms of gambling.
Until the beginning of World War II the Palace served as the cultural hub of Budapest supported by several young artists such as
- Kodály and
- Dvorák who performed in its first class concert hall.

22:00 – The Gala Concert In the Theatre Hall
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.
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.
