The numerous Santa Feans who spend their Thursday evenings listening to Hungarian folk music finally have the chance to witness the real deal on Thursday, Oct. 3. Calling the Hungarian State Folk Dance Ensemble a large company would be an understatement — it includes 30 dancers and two bands, one focusing on folk music and one on Gypsy music. Over many decades, they have toured 44 countries in their quest to share Hungary’s rich musical heritage. Béla Bartók and Johannes Brahms are the most prominent of the many composers influenced by the nation’s folk tradition. The show opens the Fall Dance Series at the Lensic Performing Arts Center (211 W. San Francisco St.). Future programs include Argentina’s Te Amo and Argentina (Oct. 11) and Brazil’s Balé Folclórico da Bahia (Nov. 13). Showtime for the folk ensemble is 7:30 p.m., and tickets ($25 to $45) can be purchased by calling 505-988-1234 and from www.ticketssantafe.org.
