The performance is based on songs of Spanish Renaissance to be presented in a theatre setting for the first time ever. The music makes a wonderful combination of Judeo-Christian and Moorish elements.

For her birthday, donna Anna implored her husband to let her put on the play Teresica in the palace gardens. The count agreed, albeit reluctantly, as though sensing that the venture will end up revealing his wife’s love secrets…

That’s the start of the chamber performance Teresica – una pasión. The play is based around songs of the Spanish Renaissance, intertwining elements from Christian, Jewish and Moorish cultures, presented in a theatrical setting for the first time. The songs were adapted and arranged by the composer and instrumentalist Mikołaj Blajda, with Zygmunt Magiera responsible for musical direction. The production is directed by its creator Fred Apke, the German director, dramatist and actor active on Poland’s stages. The count and countess are performed by the actors Jan Monczka and Marta Klubowicz, appearing alongside soloists of the Kraków Opera. (Barbara Skowrońska)
