Classical music lovers are in for a real treat in Poland over the six weeks. The Warsaw Chamber Opera is celebrating the life and works of Mozart with a festival of his music. Poland’s capital city will host productions of all of the famous composer’s twenty three stage works, as well as a selection of his orchestral and chamber compositions and concert arias. The opera performances will be held at the Warsaw Chamber Opera and the concerts at several venues in the city including the Royal Castle, the Lazienki Park and the Seminary Church.
Next year celebrations throughout Poland will take place to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Frederic Chopin’s birth, so the Mozart event in Warsaw should give people a taste of what’s to come.
Now in its 19th year, the Warsaw Mozart Festival – the brainchild of the Chamber Opera‘s Artistic Director Stefan Sutkowski – was first launched in 1991, the 200th anniversary of Mozart’s death.
