The Best

FilMusic Songs 


9 July 2017 (Sunday) 8 pm 

Margaret Island Open-Air Stage 

(2,5 hours with one intermission)

There are theme songs which not only make us sing and turn up the volume on our radio, but also make us remember the most iconic film scenes.

When Maniac is on, we immediately visualize Jennifer Beals from "Flashdance"training in her leggings, while I Had the Time of My Life conjures images of that "Dirty Dancing" that Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey performed in front of a shocked audience. But our mind's eye also projects Rocky training to "Eye of the Tiger" or Kate Winslet and Leonardo Di Caprio being Kings and Queen of the world to Celine Dion's famous "My Heart Will Go On". These songs became hits together with their films and now they are inseparable from their visual counterparts. 

The Margaret Island Open-Air Stage will once again become the country's largest garden cinema for the duration of an incredible concert. At the next stop of the Budapest Summer Festival's popular film music concert series, we can hear the most popular film hits in specially commissioned, symphonic orchestration. The popular theme songs will be performed by some of Hungary's biggest singing sensations, who are accompanied by the unique rock/symphonic hybrid ensemble. As usual, the songs will be delivered together with montages inspired by the films they come from.
