Informative about our matinée concerts

1 March 2011

Under the terms of the decision of the directorate of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, from 15th of February 2011 strict new rules are in force concerning the use of the concert hall at the Old Academy of Music. The reason is that after the tragic accident at Nyugati square in January, the authorities now rigorously check that the number of people in the audience does not exceed the permitted capacity of the concert hall.

Our hall is authorized  to seat 132 people, which means that this is the number of  the seats in the auditorium. Placing supplementary seats and the use of side seats is forbidden in the future unfortunately.

Since  tickets can be bought two weeks in advance at the museum's cash-desk, we kindly ask you to book your tickets in time. For your information, the performers provide their list of guests with complimentary tickets no later than the day before the concert.

Also the first 30 members of the Friends of the Liszt Academy of Music can receive free tickets only if they indicate their requirements no later than the day before the concert. Furthermore, in all cases a membership card must be shown.

In this way our colleagues at the cash desk will always know the number of  free seats, and  they will sell tickets accordingly.

We can no longer reserve a free seat for those who are not able to occupy their seat by 11.00 a.m.

We hope you appreciate these changes, which have been made in the interests of  your safety and comfort.
