Evening Stars

Gliding across an al-fresco stage with graceful motions reflecting their stately surroundings, movement artists of myriad genres enliven Dance in the Carmelite Courtyard—one of Budapest’s most popular outdoor performance series, held in the cloister of a former monastery. This month’s shows include “Variations”—fusing Hungary’s traditional folk dance with modern styles—by choreographer Bertalan Vári on July 27, and the “BailAmor” evening of flamenco and Argentinean tango (pictured) featuring the fiery stepping of Magyar dance maven Andrea Lippai on the 29th. July 26-Aug. 19, every show starts at 8:30 pm.
