By David Salazar

A performance of the Polish National Opera’s production of Paderewski’s “Manru” will get a live stream via OperaVision on Jan. 18, 2019.

The opera will feature Peter Berger in the title role with Ewa Tracz as Ulana. Urok will be interpreted by Mikolaj Zalasinski. Grzegorz Nowak conducts the performance, which will be directed by Marek Weiss.

The opera, which had its world premiere in 1901 is set to celebrate the centenary of Poland’s regained independence. It is the only Polish Opera, to this day, to be performed at the Metropolitan Opera.

The stream kicks off at 7 p.m. local time. That’s around 1 p.m. EDT and 10 a.m. PST for the start time. It will be available for repeat viewings on Opera Vision until July 18, 2019.

The streaming service is free through OperaVision, which, per its official website, is a project “supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe program, OperaVision builds on the success of The Opera Platform, with more contributing opera companies from more countries, under the editorial supervision of Opera Europa, the European association of opera companies and festivals.
