The amorous encounters and separations take place at a splendid ball, where the soloists of the Budapest Gypsy Symphony Orchestra provide lively dance music. In addition to the dancers, the band, which has been officially a Hungarian Specialty since March 2014 (i.e. one of the top national performances in Hungary), guarantees a great theatre experience.
