Cluj is one of the city's powers in the world, which deals with two institutions of the lyrical scene: the National Opera and the Hungarian Opera, two institutions with building, technical equipment and self-contained artistic ensemble. The Hungarian opera set up in 1948 at that time - a state decree had the purpose of a country and served the traditional preservation of the culture of the Hungarian lyrical scene by presenting performances in Hungarian, traditions whose roots can be seen in 1792, given to the first language show Hungarian in Cluj of that time.
The Hungarian opera has not yet been presented in front and its presentation of the treasure creates world and Hungarian lyrics (operas, operettas and ballet), a goal kept and continued even today. This objective is a significant show in the city of Cluj, but also in covering the territory of Transylvania, by selling small towns while they can be located more important. In addition to presenting the works of classical Hungarian composers such as Erkel Ferenc (integral of his works), Kodály Zoltán or Bartók Béla's stage creation in the attention of the opera collective, he is putting on a stage of creating Hungarian native artists thus offering a forum, a creative laboratory where young composers can manifest themselves, they can realize their creative talent.
The Hungarian State Opera in Cluj was established as a stand-alone institution on December 17, 1948, according to Decree 391. of the Presidium of the Great National Assembly of the Romanian People's Republic. The institution can use the theatrical building with all the circumstances that match the Hungarian State Theater. Until the year 1948, relatively little opera was played, the repertoire included more about operetta. In the care of the decades that follow, the Hungarian opera ensemble becomes a prestigious ensemble, meaning in the repertoire approx. 60 titles from the universal, Hungarian and local repertoire. The performances of opera, operation and ballet enjoy maximum popularity, playing the famous one more times with full halls.
