Piotr Beczala has announced that the Theater an der Wien will present Stanislaw Moniuszko’s “Halka” in 2019.

He announced that the performance will be conducted by Łukasz Borowicz and will be directed by Mariusz Treliński with the stage designed by Boris Kudlicka.

Written in 1847, the opera is rarely performed in the U.S., but it is part of the canon of Polish national operas. The opera has been performed  by the Opera Krakowska, the Kraków Opera as well as with the Pocket Opera, the Polonia Opera Company, Carnegie Hall, Detroit, Hartford and Chicago. This summer the opera will be performed in August at the Bard Summerscape.
