New Year’s Eve Gala: Moniuszko in the world of bel canto

Concert held in association with Polish Radio 2. It will be broadcast live and recorded.

To be hosted by Polish Radio’s Róża Światczyńska and Paweł Siwek.

Memories, summaries, plans, New Year’s resolutions… And what if we put all these reflections aside and escaped the mundane? What if we started the New Year with a high C? With only the greatest opera and operetta hits, masterfully performed? We will hear the stars of Polish and the world’s operatic stages, as well as the Chorus and Orchestra of Teatr Wielki - Polish National Opera. Great fun guaranteed!
