Robert Bondara, Paolo Mangiola / Stanisław Moniuszko, Roman Palester

The evening with Polish ballets

The premiere

18 / 05 / 2019

The show comprises of two one-act ballets, a vigorous ?The Song of the Earth? of Roman Palester and ?In the lodgings? of Stanisław Moniuszko. The first choreography is the work of an Italian artist, Paolo Mangioli, the director of the national ballet in Malta, who has reinterpreted the orchestrated masterpiece and an incredible energetic score of Palester, perceiving it through the prism of universal values as a creator who had had nothing to do with the Polish music and dance culture before. The brilliant interpretation of the second choreography is the work of Robert Bondara, one of the best choreographers in Poland ? appreciated, among others, for the ability to reinterpret and update the traditional texts of Polish culture ? ?Świtezianka? of E.Morawski in Teatr Wielki ? National Opera or ?The Legend of the Baltic? of F. Nowowiejski in Teatr Wielki in Poznań.

It is surprising how the clever combination of seemingly contrast artistic concepts created a coherent story about the history of our world!
