Dancing in the Streets, Singing Down the Aisles, See Europe Come to Life
Whether its whirling ballet dancers or magical marionette dolls, there are no shortage of ways to applaud your way through Europe.
Budapest comes to life during the annual Spring Festival (19 March – 5 April). From rousing performances by Ádám Banda of the Liszt Academy’s Violin school to soaring routines by the Royal Danish Ballet, music and dance envelop the city. Be sure to catch a show at the renowned Palace of the Arts. Many indoor and outdoor venues allow you to pick and choose how and where you experience Budapest’s many performances. The only question is, where will you begin?
If you’re looking for something a little less traditional yet equally inspirational, try Prague’s National Marionette Theatre. With a long and rich history of puppeteering, the Czech Republic creates some of the world’s most stunning Marionette shows. And none more so than Mozart’s Don Giovani.
And if you’d like a little more history with your theatre be sure to stop into Milestones Living Museum in Hampshire. Here, performers in Victorian-era costumes go about their business along streets and in shops and pubs from that era. After an hour of seeing the sights, you’ll surely feel like you’ve been transported back in time.
With shows like these you’ll be cheering and looking for an encore. Fortunately, we have wonderful offers throughout Europe that can help you stay a little longer.
There’ll be more standing ovations in all of these places.
