The hugely entertaining orchestra demonstrates immense skill and profound musicianship in a show that’ll make you want to book that holiday down the Danube!

The orchestra will play at the Opera House on May 25, promising a captivating performance which will evoke vivid images of tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires.

A small but impeccably formed orchestra of just four players, they combine violin, guitar, accordion, double bass, saz and balalaika.
