Nowak Premiere & Opera Conference In Poznań

The Grand Theatre in Poznań had commissioned a new opera by Aleksander Nowak, Space Opera, czyli mężczyzna, kobieta i…. [Space Opera, or a Man, a Woman, and…], which will be premiered in Poznań on March 14, 2015. The libretto of the opera is by Georgi Gospodinow and the premiere will be conducted by Marek Moś.

In conjunction with this event, an International Opera Conference was organized in Poznań for March 15-17. The goal of the conference is to examine the genre of musical theatre in the context of technological, cultural and economic transformations that are occurring at this time. The conference will seek answers to such questions as whether composing and staging contemporary opera is worth it, how to prepare viewers for contemporary operas, and how contemporary cultural organizations should face such a task.

The honorary patrons of the conference include the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage with Minister Małgorzata Omilanowska, Opera Europa Society, Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Institute of Music and Dance, Paderewski Music Academy in Poznań, and Economics University in Poznań.
