Interview with Tamás Mihály
Tamás Mihály  

     How did the most productive member of a real rock group think of he has got to compose the filmtracks of great success film 56 Drops of Blood?


     I have already been asked to compose a track of a film or Theatral pieces but I longed for to compose a huge work long time ago. With the great help of Dr Nagy, Endre it became real in SportsArena, the  largest stage of the Country in huge scenes.


     There was a great acceptance of the musical in Tata. The students and all the people there could attend seven performances free due to local government's support. After screening three times the audience could meet the creators and actors of the story. They missed you much. Why did not you attend?


     At the same day I had to be in Warsaw, where also 56 Drops of Blood was premiered, to salute the Hungarian Revolution. But on the very same day I received the news we could please 2.000 people in Tata where all the invitors and guests enyojed the talks and also the local authorities played a great role in organization and hospitality.

  Budapest, 11th of May, 2007

It's unbelievable but 50 years have passed since
the 1956 revolution! It's time we remembered it the way
it really should be remembered.
Let's make a film!
A musical!
A story of Romeo and Juliet!
A son of a freedom fighter and a daughter of a communist
officer during the revolution…
Who's going to write it? Who will compose the music?
Naturally, my good old friends, no doubt:
writer, Péter Horváth and composer, Tamás Mihály.

Press feedback
Press feedback on the stage performances of 56 Drops of Blood
in the Budapest Sports Arena, October 2006:

"Dashing music, spectacular scenes, overwhelming moments of remembrance."
Vasárnapi Hírek

"The show is undeniably effective: crowd scenes, a firefight, military vehicles, and the team of totally committed actors gave the thankful audience a thrilling night out. Once again Attila Kaszás and Zoltán Seress left us in no doubt that they are excellent actors, and Ildikó Keresztes and Zoltán Miller have all the skills a musical actor need."
Magyar Narancs

"The composer of the music of 56 Drops of Blood, Tamás Mihály from the rock band Omega, has created an amazing cavalcade of music genres: pop-jazz, Latin-pop, pop-musical, rock opera and Omega-style tunes…"

"There's never a dull moment on that huge stage. In some scenes the action takes place at three or four locations simultaneously. Powerful choreography, stunts and tanks make the scenes colourful. Some of the songs, written in excellent style by Tamás Mihály, sound like definite hits. It's a real joy to hear live music fill the Arena."

"Composer Tamás Mihály has moulded the revolution that took place half a century ago into a form which is fully understandable for everyone, including today's young people, through genuine rock music."
