Sándor Román has been performing since the age of 10. Having trained in the USA, Canada and Europe in folk dance, classical ballet and modern dance techniques, he has enjoyed a rich career focused on revolutionising the culture of Hungarian folk dance. In 2000 he founded his own dance company, ExperiDance Production, with which he inventively combines Hungarian folk dance and modern dance. He has created a unique dance style, which he has showcased in a series of breathtaking productions that have enjoyed huge success. The new show, Sissi, transports the audience to the imperial court of Austro-Hungary. The episodes from the night of the grand ball, full of yearning unfulfilled desire, are inspired by the legend of the beautiful Sissi, the “rebel empress”, and bold Count Andrássy. The third figure in this love triangle is a beautiful Gypsy girl. The show brings together 28 dancers from the ExperiDance Production troupe and 40 soloists from the Budapest Gypsy Symphony Orchestra.

The honorary sponsor is the Ambassador of Hungary H. E. Ms Edit Szilágyiné Bátorfi.

Important:

April snowfall damaged the canvas roof of the Križanke summer theatre. Events will continue to be held there, but the seating in the venue will remain temporarily exposed to the elements.
