The 17th Bydgoszcz Opera Festival begins April 24, featuring productions by musical theaters from Poland and abroad. As each year, the festival will open with a performance by the host of the event, Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz. This year Opera Nova will stage the premiere of a rarely performed opera by Amilcare Ponchielli, La Gioconda. The Bydgoszcz production is directed by Krzysztof Nazar.
Festival guests from abroad will include Danza Contemporanea de Cuba, a contemporary ballet troupe from Havana, and the Lithuanian National Theater, Opera and Ballet from Vilnius, which will perform The Jewess by Jacques Halevy.
Polish opera productions will include Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Evgeny Onegin by the Baltic Opera from Gdańsk, Jules Massenet's Werther by the Wielki Theater from Poznań, and Giuseppe Verdi's Aida by the Wielki Theater from ŁódĽ.
Audiences in Bydgoszcz will see both established and up-and-coming performers. Students from the Music Academy in Wrocław will perform The Merry Wives of Windsor and students from the Music Academy in Bydgoszcz will perform the Giacomo Puccini opera Gianni Schicchi.
The Bydgoszcz Opera Festival has been held every year since 1994. The two weeks of the festival are an opportunity for artists to meet with fans of various genres, from opera and operetta to musicals and ballet.
