Jawnuta

Author(s): Music by Stanisław Moniuszko, text by Władysław Ludwik Anczyc
Company: Poznań Opera
Running time: 1h 50min approx

A great love that must defy prejudice. A secret kept hidden for years and a surprising denouement. The formidable force of memories unveiling the mysteries of the past.

Stach comes from a wealthy family, Chicha is a Gypsy. Social conventions, intolerance and stubbornness stand in the way of their happiness.

Will Stach and Chicha end up together? Will the family secrets come out? Is a happy ending always happy?

Poznań Opera stages a rarely performed opera by Stanislaw Moniuszko, shown for the first time in a full musical arrangement prepared by its conductor Rafał Kłoczko.

Ilaria Lanzino, an Italian director of the young generation, known for her unconventional and coherent productions, directs Jawnuta to designs by Dorota Karolczak. For Lanzino, this is a story about the Polish Roma and their complicated history, about the power of prejudice and how to avoid it.
