Team staging the "Opera about Warsaw: The Best City in the World" announced

NajlepszeMiasto 5 6 24On the 5th of June, during a press conference, we were introduced to the team preparing the staging of the first "Opera about Warsaw" (a co-production of Sinfonia Varsovia and the Grand Theatre - Polish National Opera), and the Deputy Mayor of Warsaw, Aldona Machnowska-Góra, announced the exact premiere date – the 19th of September, 2025. The composer, Cezary Duchnowski, will hand over the score to the performers this September.

As emphasized by the Director of the Grand Theatre - Polish National Opera, Waldemar Dąbrowski, "the process of rebuilding Warsaw itself was an 'opera,' a work of art," and thus the first opera dedicated to this subject will be presented in the year marking the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the city's reconstruction after World War II. The libretto, based on the award-winning book "The Best City in the World" by Grzegorz Piątek, was created by Beniamin Bukowski, and the opera will be directed by Barbara Wiśniewska, whose family has lived in Warsaw for five generations and witnessed the post-war rebirth of the capital. The project council chose Wiśniewska's concept - she is a lecturer at the Warsaw Theatre Academy and a long-time assistant to Mariusz Treliński - through a closed competition

Warsaw | Performative concert for children "Swamp and Stream Orchestra"

Event date: 2024-06-08

HashtagLab 8 6 24Media patronage: Polish Music Information Centre POLMIC

The "Swamp and Stream Orchestra" tells children about climate change and caring for the environment. We will hear the voices of flora and fauna performed by a string quintet, and the words will enter into a dialogue with electronics.

The children themselves will take active part in making the miniatures: they will be able to modify the sound thanks to interactive sensors placed in the Hashtag Lab space, creating an orchestra of sensors. Such a performance of the composition will be unique: each time a new cast and the mood of the performers will give it a unique character and will be an inspiration for the improvised parts of the work played by the ensemble.
