By Stanislaw Moniuszko
English Translation by Donald Pippin
The other masterpiece by the composer of last season’s buoyant The Haunted Manor, similar in its luscious melody rich with the flavor of Poland, but far different in effect. A heartrending tale of misplaced love, somewhat akin to the ballet Giselle. A richly melodic score, steeped in Polish folk balladry and dance rhythms, it has been said that were it in French or Italian, it would be universally known and loved as one of the great operas of the 19th century. Judge for yourself when it will be heard for the first time ever in a brand new English translation.
