We invite those interested in János Arany’s poetry to a special evening, to the dress rehearsal of the performance of Örkény Theater. Entitled Aranyozás (Gilding), the performance will start at 7 p.m. on Friday September 15, 2017.

In the compilation edited by Győző Ferencz and Pál Mácsai, writings and poems written by generations of poets succeeding Arany will be read, including texts by authors from Petőfi, via the so-called Westerners, to contemporaries such as Szabolcs Várady, Ádám Nádasdy, András Ferenc Kovács and Dániel Varró. Arany's intellectual legacy, poetry and figure have never ceased to represent a standard and inspiring example for all the other poets.

Texts will be read by Kriszta Bíró, Imre Csuja, Béla Dóra, Attila Epres, István Ficza, Anikó Für, László Gálffi, Gabriella Hámori, Zsombor Jéger, Tünde Kókai, Zsolt Máthé, Zsolt Nagy, Máté Novkov, Márton Patkós, Judit Pogány, Csaba Polgár, Nóra Diána Takács, Réka Tenki, Milán Vajda, István Znamenák and Emőke Zsigmond.
