Jerzy Kornowicz

The least probable story

The premiere

19 / 12 / 2015

Entering the Opera we start the journey into the magic land of the Clock. We meet in the auditorium. There we meet the King, the Princess and the inhabitants of the Land which has announced a competition for the least probable thing. Everybody tries to suggest something extraordinary to impress the King and the Jurors of the competition. However, only when the Clockmaker comes with his marvellous invention, the inhabitants of the Kingdom are truly amazed. In the heart of the Clock there is enchanted the essence of the world, and to experience it truly we set off ? with the Guide ? for a stroll around the corridors and the chambers of the Opera at the Castle. We return to the auditorium having experienced the magic of the Clockmaker?s invention fully.

The King, delighted with the Clock, wishes to announce his verdict. Then, however, there comes Otocham Tinpu Hammer, who wishes to take part in the competition. The story gets more complicated. Who will win?
