Days of New Music 2017 PDF Print E-mail

d7th edition of the "Days of New Music" Festival will be held between January 18 and 22, 2017 in Gdańsk.

Since its very beginning, the festival focuses on presenting unconventional music. Aimed at remaining open to all kinds of experimental, contemporary and avant-garde art, it puts special attention to new music defined as a genre that constantly looks for new forms, content, and ways to combine various contradictory styles.

This year, the programme has been based on 2 ideas - exploring aspects of collective collaboration vs. individual compositional process, and presentation of music by avant-garde artists. As much as exposing the complexity of contemporary music scene is important to the event organizers, a special importance is attached to those artistic initiatives which may interest the listeners who are not particularly familiar with contemporary music trends. The line-up includes projects made by Artur Zagajewski, Olga Wojciechowska and others.

The Metropolitan Opera – live in HD: "Roméo et Juliette" by Charles Gounod PDF Print E-mail

met Charles Gounod’s opera Roméo et Juliette will be broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera on January 21, 2017 in over 35 cinemas in Poland.

First performed at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris in 1867, Gounod’s opera was written to a French libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré. Although its plot is based on The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, it provides a slight shift of focus away from the word games of the original play and a greater focus on the two lovers, who are given four duets, including a brief final reunion in the tomb scene that does not appear in the play. The Met’s production moves the action to the 18th century. The performance cast includes such artists as Diana Damrau (Juliette), Vittorio Grigolo (Roméo), Elliot Madore (Mercutio) and Gianandrea Noseda (conductor).

The Metropolitan Opera’s 2016-17 season, the 50th anniversary of its home at Lincoln Center, features 225 opera performances of 26 operas in a varied repertory that ranges from 18th century masterpieces to one of the most acclaimed operas in recent years. The Met: Live in HD series, which transmits Met performances to more than 2,000 movie theaters in 70 countries around the world, continues for its 11th season and includes the broadcast of 10 performances from the season.

Firs Have Been Rustling for Half a Century PDF Print E-mail

s Grand Theatre in Łódź will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a special concert held under the title Firs Have Been Rustling for Half a Century on January 20, 2017.

The significance of Stanisław Moniuszko’s Halka might be easily spotted when one realizes that it was selected to inaugurate several Polish opera theatres - Poznań Opera House (1919), Wrocław Opera (1945), and Silesian Opera in Bytom (1945). The situation was not different in Łódź as the newly-constructed building of the Grand Theatre opened its doors on January 19, 1967 by staging Moniuszko’s opera. It is this very tradition that will be revived exactly fifty years later.

The anniversary concert, performed by the soloists, choir, ballet and orchestra under the baton of Wojciech Rodek, will feature fragments of Halka and Krzesany by Wojciech Kilar.
