Bolshoi Performs Tchaikovsky
Moscow’s legendary Bolshoi Theater, under the baton of Alexander Vedernikov, will be performing Tchaikovsky’s opera Iolanta at the National Philharmonic in Warsaw on June 4.

Iolanta was Tchaikovsky’s last opera and was originally written in one act. The present two-act version has been regularly performed by the Bolshoi Theater since 1997. The work is based on the play King Rene’s Daughter by Danish dramatist Henrik Hertz and the libretto was penned by the composer’s brother Modest.

The Bolshoi Theater dates back to 1776 and is celebrated for its large scale ballet and opera productions.

Tango Goes Electronic
Warsaw’s Kongresowa Hall will be catering for fans of Argentine tango, electronic music and dub when French-Argentine-Swiss trio Gotan Project take the stage on June 17.

Gotan Project got together in Paris in 1999 and took it upon themselves to fuse the sensuousness of Argentinian music with the technical coolness of electronic music. The experimental nature of what they had set out upon was reflected in the name “Gotan” (an anagram of “Tango”) plus “Project.”

June 17 at 8 p.m., Kongresowa Hall, 1 Defilad Sq.
Tickets: zl.100–zl.260
