History and teachings
The Szeged Open-Air Festival is Hungary’s largest outdoor theatre and one of the most important summer theatre festivals in Central Europe. It offers a unique diversity of genres among European theatre festivals, with a programme that includes opera, musicals, prose and symphonic music. Its mission is to promote folk theatre, local culture and rural tourism.
The festival was designed based on the the Venice Open Air Theatre. Artists from abroad are invited to the festival already from the 70’s.
