The HSFE presents all folk-related Hungarian genres on stage: historic music, authentic folk music and dance, dramatic folk plays, as well as traditional-based world music, show-dancing and the elements of the contemporary dance-house tradition.

Its diverse repertoire has made the HSFE one of the most widely performing ensembles of the world: in its six decades of existence, the HSFE has performed in 50 countries on four continents, entertaining more than 8 million people. At home (8 Corvin tér, Budapest), the HSFE performs about 100-120 times a year, beside being regular guest of theatres in all Hungarian populated areas outside the borders of the Hungarian state.
