Duration: Approximately 2 hours, including one interval.


A powerful tale where paganism and sensuality battle religion and restraint. Szymanowski’s intoxicating, iridescent music is rarely heard on the opera stage, so don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear a 20th-century masterpiece.

This co-production with the Royal Opera House was first performed in Covent Garden and “rapturously acclaimed” by critics who described Kasper Holten’s arresting staging as a “major artistic triumph” ( The Telegraph, UK).

Sung in Polish with English surtitles.
