Conversations for a New Season 2.0

The Teatr Wielki releases a new book in its publishing series. Come to the launch, meet the authors, and visit the exhibition of book illustrations. 


We are presenting the second volume of Conversations for the New Season, a collection of discussions about the opera and ballet productions currently on at the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera. Offering their insights are Ewa Łętowska and Krzysztof Pawłowski as well as Ewa Krasucka and Paweł Chynowski. All conversations have been translated into English. 

The book launch with the authors in attendence will take place on 19 September 2016 at 6 pm in the Downstairs Foyer of the Wielki. An exhibition of memes created by Marta Frej as illustrations for the book will also open on the day. 

Admission free. Join the event on Facebook.

Ewa Łętowska and Krzysztof Pawłowski: 'Fancy a chat?' / 'Sure, we actually have something to say.' Ewa Krasucka and Paweł Chynowski: 'Shall we dance?' / 'No. we shall talk.'

Conversations for the New Season are full of casual observations on various topics, sometimes very loosely connected to the Polish National Opera’s repertoire. These witty exchanges brim with humour and knowledge, both about the past and present. Even a real expert may find some information surprising. For the layman the book might serve as excellent motivation to discover opera and its secrets.’
