This richly decorated monument is located at Budapest’s most famous street, the Andrássy Avenue. It was built in 1884 inneo-renaissancestyle, and famously houses a chandelier that weighs 2.1 tons. Its style is eclectic in the sense that it combines renaissance calm and harmonious, geometric forms with the baroque grandiose of gold ornamentation and wall paintings. The architect, Miklós Ybl, took the Parisian Opera as a model so it was designed following the trends of the era. The exterior has more of a classicist feel with its pure architecture elements giving it a typical look of any European capital of the past. At that time only wealthy people could experience this beautiful place, but it has since become a venue open to everyone, offering student discounts, tours, and other kinds of events. Many world famous singers have performed on this stage, like Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo. The Hungarian Opera House was featured in Woody Allen’s Love and Death, and was also used in 1972 as a setting for the film Bluebeard starring Richard Burton and in 1989 for The Phantom of the Opera starring Robert Englund. In 2014, Adrien Brody was filmed performing on its stage for the series Houdini. Also for the spy movie Red Sparrow Jennifer Lawrence performed on the Opera House’s stage in 2018. For the TV series shot in the same year called The Alienist, it doubled as New York’s MET. Furthermore, Progressive Productions also shot several projects in the Opera House, for example, a TV commercial for APT Tours and another commercial for Monmilk.
