Attila Vidnyánszky, director of the National Theater of Budapest said at the opening of the festival that in its 25 years of existence the Beregszász Theater has raised a generation of theater-lovers and has become an important element of the national culture of the Hungarian ethnic minority in the Ukraine.

The opening performance featured Zsolt Trill, an actor who is a member of both the Budapest and the Beregszász ensemble.

Ukraine has an ethnic Hungarian minority of some 150,000.
