Dear Explorers,

Let us discover together the beauty of the performance which belongs to the canon of Polish operas!

Halka is considered one of Moniuszko's greatest operas & was composed closely following the Galician Slaughter, a bloody peasant uprising against serfdom.
The story is that of the tragic love of the title character, the highlander girl Halka, for the noble Janusz, who abandons her to wed the daughter of the Esquire. It is a tale of jealousy and sacrifice.
The choice to make the heroine a peasant girl demanding reciprocity in love from a nobleman was a significant one. The social drama described in Halka remains current – although one speaks today not of serfdom, but of economic exclusion.

There are still plenty of tickets available, but I recommend you to hurry up. In order to purchase the tickets click the name of the venue (name of place) which will bring you directly to the seating plan (English version). I have already my ticket: Upper circle, row 1, seat 75

The performance is in Polish with English subtitles, starts at 6 pm but I propose to meet earlier at 5:30 pm at the entrance to the EMPIK CAFE which is located inside the opera building.
After the performance, upon your wish, we may eat something together.

Hope to see many of you!
