Budapest, November 17 (MTI) – Some 5 million to 5.5 million theatre tickets are being sold annually in Hungary which demonstrates that theatre has been the art form that lost the least of its popularity since this country’s transition to democracy, the head of the alliance of theatre companies Magyar Teatrumi Tarsasag said in Kecskemet, in central Hungary, today.
Attila Vidnyanszky, who is also the director of the National Theatre, said that almost as many Hungarians go to theatre these days as 25 years ago. Hungarians are among the most enthusiastic theatre-goers, with tickets sales growing especially in the past 2-3 years, he said.
Vidnyanszky said the alliance was making special efforts to help theatre-goers with disabilities and promote the re-launch of TV film production.
