Melinda Esterházy: "Life has given me so much"

(c) Roland Schuller

The exhibition about Princess Melinda Esterházy (1920— 2014) traces the stages in the life of an extraordinary woman. Melinda Ottrubay started dancing as a young bourgeois girl, enjoyed an exceptional career at the Budapest Opera House before finally marrying Prince Paul Esterházy V.

As a visitor you can directly experience Melinda Esterházy as an authentic character, both in her career at the opera and in her personal life. You will have glimpses of a life full of highs and lows, her ambitious career and her personal world away from the stage.

Beyond the “fairy-tale character”, you will get to know a strong personality who grew with the tasks that life presented. Room by room you can walk through the life of Melinda Ottrubay as if through an opera. You will get to know the protagonist in her early life, as a trainee and prima ballerina assoluta, and later as a princess Esterházy.

From November 2022 to March 2023, the exhibition will be open to the public Tuesday through Friday on a guided tour only.
