Classical Music Lets its Hair Down

Classical music will let its hair down as Warsaw hosts its third La Folle Journée festival from Sept. 28 to 30. The festival, which this year is focusing on great Russian composers such as Rachmaninov, Rimsky-Korsakov and Shostakovich, aims to deconstruct the stereotype that classical music has to be difficult and inaccessible.

Sixty concerts by more than 950 musicians from all over the world are planned. Concerts will be held for three days at the Wielki Theater/National Opera and in a concert tent on Teatralny Square. Each concert lasts about an hour and tickets cost zl.5, 7 and 10.

The low prices and the relatively short performances are meant to encourage large audiences to attend.

The international La Folle Journée festival has been held for years in France, Spain, Japan and Brazil. It was launched in Poland in 2010. The local organizers are the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra, the Music Gardens Foundation, the Wielki Theater/National Opera and the French Institute in Warsaw.
