The Wrocław Opera invites you on 14 February 2021 at 6.00 p.m to the Valentine's Day Concert entitled "Faces of Love". The carnival evening will be broadcast on YouTube in two parts: devoted to musical and operetta.
The musical part will feature an overture performed by the Wrocław Opera Orchestra conducted by Adam Banaszak and numerous fragments of Leonard Bernstein's Candide, which was premiered at the Wrocław Opera in December 2017. Martin's laughing song Words, words, words will be performed by Jakub Michalski, Kunegunda's aria Glitter and be gay will be performed by Maria Rozynek-Banaszak, and Song Old Lady by Barbara Bagińska. We also hear fragments of other musicals, including My Fair Lady or Man from La Mancha, performed by Katarzyna Haras, Maciej Krzysztyniak, Jacek Jaskuła and Tomasz Rudnicki.
The second part, devoted to operetta, will open with the overture to The Revenge of the Bat by Johann Strauss and will also feature Prince Orlofsky's cuples performed by Dorota Dutkowska. The most beautiful arias from operettas by Franz Lehár and Emmerich Kálmánn will be performed by Elżbieta Kaczmarzyk-Janczak, Eliza Kruszczyńska, Hanna Sosnowska and Łukasz Rosiak. Anna Lichorowicz will present Ludomir Różycki's Waltz Caton, and Aleksandra Opała Ah! que j’aime les militaires by Jacques Offenbach. We will also hear Edward Kulczyk and Jędrzej Tomczyk.
