President János Áder on Friday evening inaugurated the new building of the National Dance Theatre in Budapest’s Millenáris Park as part of the opening gala for the Budapest Dance Festival.

In his speech, Áder said the new theatre’s mission will be to “represent, give space, present, captivate, educate and initiate” by becoming the home of top, internationally renowned Hungarian dance ensembles.

“It should be a place where culture is formed, shaped and invigorated,” the president said.
