Madama Butterfly in the media

The media is writing more and more about the June performance of "Madama Butterfly" – we encourage you to read the interview with Aleksandra Kurzak and Robert Alagna in "Twój Styl" (2/2019), to move for a moment to the French residence of our opera marriage thanks to "Viva" (3/2019) and to see the conversation with the artist in the MUZOTok program:

Our stars in Met

Aleksandra Kurzak and Roberto Alagna will sing together in "Carmen" by Georges Bizet, which revival directed by Richard Eyre is being prepared by New York's Metropolitan Opera. Under the baton of Louis Langrée, the artists will sing the parts that they won other opera houses – Aleksandra Kurzak will play Micaëla, and Roberto Alagna - Don José, Carmen’s lover (Clémentine Margaine).

The performance played in New York between January 9 and February 8 will also be shown in Poland – we invite you to Teatr Studio on February 2 to broadcast "Carmen" live in HD.

The Parade Square

The Parade Square

The Parade Square is a project implemented by the Studio Theatre, the alliance of partners, institutions, non-governmental organizations, artists, activists and above all the residents whose love for the city is expressed in actions. The place and idea of being together. Variable as the plans and contexts of the space in the center of Warsaw that changes every year.

Immutable and stable like the shadow of the Palace of Culture and Science.  We fulfil dreams of a beautiful, happy city, a democratic place to live and participate together in culture. Concerts, film screenings, performances, dances, exhibitions, talks and plenty of space to spend time together. From the Square we can look at the world with wonder and attention, with respect and kindness towards others.  The Square is for everyone, regardless of their beliefs, religion and origin.
