Two outstanding works by composer Karol Szymanowski, considered the father of modern Polish music, will be performed in the United States during the Bard SummerScape festival in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. Performers will include Polish artists. The festival, one of the most prestigious in the country, is focusing on staging operas infrequently performed in the United States.

Aug. 2-3 will see a performance of Szymanowski's Król Roger (King Roger) opera, preceded by the Harnasie ballet. The American Symphony Orchestra will perform Szymanowski's music under Leon Botstein, the music director of the orchestra as well as of the festival. The performers will include Polish soloists Adam Kruszewski, Iwona Hossa, Tadeusz Szlenkier, Wojciech Maciejowski, Ewa Marciniec and Wojciech Bujalski; the Wroc³aw Opera Choir; and the SummerScape Festival Children's Choir. The director and stage designer is Lech Majewski, and choreography is by Noemi Lafrance. Both works will be staged in Polish with English subtitles.

This year's Bard SummerScape is dedicated to the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev and his contemporaries.
