The translation of Die Fledermaus (The Bat) by the poet Julian Tuwim inspired the show’s director and choreographer, Janusz Józefowicz, to create a light-hearted, humorous yet spectacular performance on the stage of Kraków Opera. His rendition of the operetta is redolent with the atmosphere of the epoch: it is rich, meticulous and realistic. The costumes, made of silk, lace and velvet and decorated with ostrich plumes, take the audience a hundred years back. The orchestra plays lightly, in keeping with the atmosphere of the show. This Johann Strauss doesn’t sound his age.
Composer: Johann Strauss
Direction and choreography: Janusz Józefowicz
Conductor: Marcin Nałęcz-Niesiołowski

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.
