Warsaw’s Grand Theatre and National Opera opeed its fall season with performances of new production of Ludomir Różycki’s opera Eros i Psyche on October 13, 15, 17 and 19. Barbara Wysocka directed the new staging of this work and the recently appointed musical director, Maestro Grzegorz Nowak, led the orchestra.
Based on a story by Jaerzy Żuławski, the opera was very popular in Poland before World War II. Its subject is the longing of humankind for an ideal world. The opera’s heroine, Psyche, traverses the history from the mythical Arcadia through the Imperial Rome to the Mediaeval Europe and French Revolution all the way to the cusp of the twentieth century, in search of the elusive goal of happiness.
