Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa da Requiem intertwines reflection on the fragility of human existence with hope for eternal life after death. The composition which has been performed at such diverse venues as La Scala in Milan and the Theresienstadt concentration camp during the Second World War returns to the repertoire of the Krakow Opera after a few years. We will hear it on 13 April at the Church of St Maximilian Maria Kolbe in Oświęcim and again on 14 April (Palm Sunday) at the Krakow Opera. Solo parts are performer by Katarzyna Oleś-Blacha (soprano), Anna Lubańska (alto), Mihail Mihaylov (tenor) and Volodymyr Pankiv (bass).

During the artistic season, the Kraków Opera presents around 200 performances: world classics, operettas, and ballet and musical productions for children.
During the artistic season, the Kraków Opera presents around 200 performances enjoyed by an audience of nearly 70,000. Its repertoire includes world classics (Carmen, Tosca, la Boheme), operettas (The Gypsy Baron, Die Fledermaus), and ballet and musical productions for children. Polish artists of world renown, notably Małgorzata Walewska, Mariusz Kwiecień, Andrzej Dobber, Wojtek Śmiłek, and Łukasz Borowicz, enjoy working with the Kraków Opera. The popularity of opera productions in Kraków makes it necessary to book tickets long in advance. The artistic season of the Kraków opera ends on a powerful forte: a summer festival presenting musical productions amid the extraordinary scenery of Wawel Castle courtyard.
Guest performances by theatres and concerts can also be seen on the hospitable stage of the Kraków Opera.
