Since reconstruction of the Liszt Academy, the Sir Georg Solti Chamber Hall has once again started functioning as a stage for operas and other events. The first opera production organized here after the reopening in 2013 was a performance of Mozart’s The Magic Flute under the artistic direction of Éva Marton. The production was directed by András Almási-Tóth, teacher of stage technique in the Department of Vocal and Opera Studies; the speciality of his vision was that the Liszt Academy itself, its marvellous Art Nouveau palace designed by Flóris Korb and Kálmán Giergl, should be centre stage and the backdrop to the performance. What else would be qualified to bring into harmony the opposites of darkness and light, sense and emotion, Sarastro and the Queen of the Night if not music? The production was such a success that it featured on the programme of the academy until 2015. Now, after a gap of four years, it is back again, building on former and current students of the singing department now headed by Andrea Meláth, as well as rising stars of Hungarian opera performance. Yvette Mondok plays Queen of the Night, Géza Gábor Sarastro.
