TEL AVIV (Apr. 5)
Habimah, the Israel National Theater, has been officially invited to perform in Budapest, and the Hungarian National Theater will come to Israel later for performances at the Habimah Theater building.
The invitation to Habimah was extended by the director of the Hungarian Ministry of Education’s Cultural Affairs Department to Habimah artistic director Omri Nitzan and actor Avraham Ronai during their visit to Hungary as the guests of the Hungarian National Theater last week.
The Israeli group will probably visit Hungary in September or October, during a Habimah tour of Europe during which they will perform at theatrical festivals in Copenhagen, West Berlin and Belgrade.
Omri said that while in Budapest, they had met with Mikhael Gloz, artistic director of the Soviet Jewish Theater in Moscow, who had expressed the hope that his actors’ group would visit Israel shortly.
