Quotes & Highlights
“There ought to be a law. All opera in English should be performed in Donald Pippin’s translation.” —SF Classical Voice

A buoyant and colorful comedy, by a composer revered in Poland as second only to Chopin, kicks off when two young soldiers who are brothers, in a burst of patriotic fervor, vow to remain single in order to be instantly available to answer the summons of duty – a not unlikely possibility in their perennially besieged homeland. Their determination shifts radically after an eventful night spent in a reputedly haunted house, as plotted by two lively and somewhat mischievous ladies.
