Countess Maritza

Countess Maritza

Emmerich Kálmán
Conductor: Tomasz Tokarczyk
Main Stage
3 h | intervals: 1

“Countess Maritza”, the second success of the Hungarian composer Emmerich Kálmána after “The Gipsy Princess”, secured him a permanent place among the most outstanding operetta authors of the 20th century. The piece tells about true love, free from any dependencies, such as property, position in the society or the social hierarchy, although these circumstances are discussed here most. Therefore, the piece is pretty enjoyable, as it incorporates the yearnings of a huge part of the humankind. Moreover, Kálmán seduces with effective melodies, coloured with Hungarian folklore and Gypsy tunes. Most arias and duets have detached from the original work and gained individual popularity, like Maritza’s csardas “I hear Gipsy violins”, the duet of Maritza and Zsupan “Let's Go to Varasdin” or the evergreen aria “Play Gipsy”.

Spectacular music, beautiful voices, a funny intrigue, gentle humour, rich costumes with sublime details, and a wonderfully distant world that brings joy and consolation.

Tosca

Tosca

Giacomo Puccini
Conductor: Tomasz Tokarczyk
Main Stage
2 h 45 min | intervals: 2

"Tosca" is a part of the standard opera repertoire and has allowed many singers to create unforgettable characters. The opera features some of Puccini’s most splendid arias, Recondita armonia... and E lucevan le stelle..., interwoven with the story of a tragic love between the singer Tosca and the painter Cavaradossi, who fall prey to the police chief Scarpia’s machinations. As with every great work of worldwide fame, the producers are faced with the danger of rendering the opera too banal or too predictable, but the Krakow Opera’s staging of Tosca has a lot to recommend itself. Apart from an absolute vocal mastery, the lead singers show excellent acting skills – their characters are deeply moving and believable. The dramatic story of Tosca and Cavaradossi’s love as seen at the Krakow Opera House moves the audience to tears.

Tannhäuser

Tannhäuser

Richard Wagner
Conductor: Tomasz Tokarczyk
Main Stage
4 h | intervals: 2

Laco Adamik’s production moves away from the Romantic convention of staging the piece and brings it closer to our time.  It becomes a story not only about love and its varieties, but above all about a man torn between culture and nature, sensuality and spirituality, about the protagonist’s maturing on his way to finding himself, the essence of his humanity.

Tannhäuser is the first opera by Richard Wagner ever to be staged at the Krakow Opera.
