Everything in this troubled land is politicalmain
A group of Hungarians decided to deliver a 90th birthday serenade to former president Arpad Göncz, who led and liberalised the country for a decade (1990-2000) after the end of Communism.
Uncontroversially, they chose to sing Va, pensiero, from Verdi’s Nabucco. It was instantly understood as a protest against the present rightwing regime and is going viral online.
If you haven’t heard Va, pensiero in Hungarian, this is your chance. Almost better than the original.
