While the Hungarian National Ballet appears in modern ballet pieces that require recorded music, the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra can perform music elsewhere. They have been invited to play at one of the most prestigious concert halls of the world – Carnegie Hall. The concert is organized in memory of Italian-born composer Aldo Finzi. The program also includes pieces by two Hungarian composers – Béla Bartók and Ernst von Dohnányi – who found their home in the U.S.
