Might I suggest that, if you want good quality Mozart opera at reasonable prices, try Budapest. We saw an excellent performance of Seraglio there some years ago. (We also saw a performance of a Haydn opera on a previous occasion; also good, but part of the touristic summer season at much higher prices).

The Operetta Theatre is good if you like Lehar and the like, too.

Budapest also offers its gamut of "folkloric" music and dance shows" - I don't know how good they are. We did see the genuine thing in Kecskemet a few years ago, on an open-air stage and for free - until the rain tipped down!

We also love Portuguese "fado" and enjoyed an evening here when we went to Lisbon in April. It's not everyone's cup of tea and it goes on seriously late!

About fifteen years ago we attended a conference in South Africa and were taken to various functions, including what was billed as a Zulu tribal celebration, featuring a group of young people dressed in skimpy clothes who chanted and danced without much enthusiasm (I wondered how many of them were unemployed graduates trying to make a bit of money). At the end of the performance one young woman rather spoiled the intended effect of wild primitive natives by shouting, "Hallelujah!"
