Krzesimir Dębski’s opera is full of bold juxtapositions of archaic language with modern orchestration techniques and the captivating sound of the choir’s commentary, reminiscent of a Greek tragedy. It is not without significance that the premiere of the work, originally planned for May 2020, had to be postponed due to the pandemic that spread across almost the entire world. For that same reason, it was not possible to present the concert version of the work in October 2020. Perhaps, however, all these difficult circumstances will strengthen the universal message of the work. It is, as the composer himself emphasizes, “an opera […] about the fate of a man who has fallen into misfortunes and then arises from this fall”.

  1. Why tease peo`ple with a tiny fragment??? Why not the complete opera??? I´m not blaming you, but the source who gave you this. It is mean and ruthless.

    1. You are right. The opera was streamed by the Royal Polish Opera but disappeared almost immediately. The only video they still have is this trailer….

  2. I find that nasty and rotten from their part. Again, I´m not blaming you guys who do a FANTASTIC JOB!!!! I hope that the complete video surfaces, sooner or later. Thanks! F
