Conversations for the New Season is a collection of witty, sometimes ironic, highly professional conversations about opera and ballet conducted in beautiful language. Discussing this season’s opera repertoire are Professor Ewa Łętowska and Krzysztof Pawłowski, while Ewa Krasucka and Paweł Chynowski exchange views on the Polish National Ballet’s current offerings.
‘These well-aimed, light exchanges of opinion make extremely entertaining but also inspiring reading, an excellent lead-in to a visit to the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera, one already planned or one that you will plan after reading Conversations for the New Season,’ the director of the Teatr Wielki, Waldemar Dąbrowski praises the publication.
