The premiere of Zygmunt Krauze's opera Yemaya – Queen of the Seas directed by Hanna Marasz will take place on 1 October 2019 at the Wrocław Opera.
The performance, full of magic of a fairy-tale world, at the same time hides important existential threads. The opera was created as part of the 'Composing Commissions' programme, implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance. The latest Krauze opera targets a family audience. Therefore, the work not only fulfills culture-making and popularizing functions among children and families, but also builds relationships based on shared sensivity to beauty. Yemaya – Queen of the Seas was written especially for the Wrocław Opera, promoting through its activities works of Polish composers.
The work will be presented by the Choir, Children's Choir, Ballet and Orchestra of the Wrocław Opera conducted by Adam Banaszak. The main roles will be performed by Bożena Bujnicka (Yemaya), Jacek Jaskuła (Father) and Helena Czech (Omar).
