The premiere of Zygmunt Krauze’s opera Yemaya – Queen of the Seas directed by Hanna Marasz took place on 1 October at the Wrocław Opera. The performance, full of the magic of a fairy-tale world, targets a family audience and was created as part of the ‘Composing Commissions’ program, implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance. The work also explores sensitivity to beauty. Yemaya – Queen of the Seas was written especially for the Wrocław Opera.

The work was presented by the Choir, Children’s Choir, Ballet and Orchestra of the Wrocław Opera conducted by Adam Banaszak. The main roles were performed by Bożena Bujnicka (Yemaya), Jacek Jaskuła (Father) and Helena Czech (Omar).
