Eugene Onegin

Eugene Onegin

Piotr Czajkowski
Conductor: Evgeny Volynskiy
Main Stage
3 h | intervals: 2

Tchaikovsky described his romantic opera, based on Pushkin`s novel in verse of the same title, as lyrical scenes, underscoring the poetic nature of the work. The directors of this staging have followed the same path; without highlighting any realistic details, they have conjured up a poetic, lyrical tale of lost illusions, of time which heals all wounds but also takes one ever farther away from the excitements of youth, strips all the characters in the story of their dreams and frustrates their desires.

The Tales of Hoffmann

The Tales of Hoffmann

Jacques Offenbach
Conductor: Tomasz Tokarczyk
Main Stage
3 h 45 min | intervals: 2

One of the most intriguing operatic pieces that allures with mystery and offers endless interpretations. The dream of producers and performers. But also a challenge. Authors of the staging reach to the fantastic stories by E. T. A. Hoffmann (1776-1822), which inspired Offenbach’s opera. By introducing us to the modern worlds of civilisation, real however looking ahead, they translate them into the contemporary language. Realism and fantasy, contemporaneity and a futuristic vision – this is the poetics of the staging. In terms of music, the performance presents a selected version of the opera which, after all, was not finished by the composer. Except for the best known "Barcarolle" and "Olympia’s Aria", we are going to hear plenty of other magnificent arias and terzettos, pastiche and parodies, which build up the musical world of the piece.

Norma

Norma

Vincenzo Bellini
Conductor: Tomasz Tokarczyk

“Norma” is believed to be a perfect opera in which the composer, Vincenzo Bellini, demonstrated inexhaustible melodic invention; the musical layer was given a sublime and noble expression, while the themes are “sculpted in white marble”. The title character is a high-priestess torn between her love to a man who is an invader and her social service, and between her love to own children and her desire for revenge as a betrayed mistress. The conflict between love and obligation, and the private and public sphere is very emotional here, truly human and universal.
