The first edition of Jazz Side Story led to two consecutive sold-out shows at the Festival Theatre in 2018. Now, Nikoletta Szőke, Bálint Gájer and their musical associates are raising the stakes. They will perform eternal Bernstein compositions at the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall alongside Kornél Fekete-Kovács-led Danubia Orchesta and a selection of jazz brass musicians, ensuring a fuller sound and elegantly powerful performance, halfway between classical music and jazz. Bernstein is always thrilling: one week after the 106th anniversary of his birth, nine months after the premiere of the influential film about his life - always.

Program and cast

Palace of Arts Müpa Budapest

When Müpa Budapest, Hungary and its capital's new cultural hub, opened in 2005, it was built to represent more than 100 years of Hungarian cultural history. As a conglomeration of cultural venues, the building has no precedent in 20th century Hungarian architecture and has no peers in the whole of Central Europe.


The creators of this ambitious project, the Trigránit Development Corporation, prime contractor Arcadom Construction and the Zoboki, Demeter and Partners Architectural Office, were driven by the desire to create a new European cultural citadel as part of the new Millennium City Centre complex along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Danube waterfront. The result is a facility whose construction quality, appearance, functionality and 21st century technological infrastructure makes it ideally suited to productions of the highest standard. The building is also highly versatile and equipped to host performances of any genre and almost any scale.
