István a Király
18 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this rock opera more than twenty years ago and I still love it. I can listening over and over again. I still know the songs.I always loved history and this rock opera just tells me how rich the Hungarian history.I have not see or heard this rock opera but recently I visited my sister house in Hungary and her boyfriend has the CD.He gave me a copy of it. Now I can listen to it when I will go back to United State. Every time I listen to it I can see every movement from the start to the end. All the songs are very likable and very easy to learn. You hear the songs once and the next time you almost know them ( of course you have to speak Hungarian). I know this because when I heard the first time I still knew the songs.
