opera in three acts
libretto by the composer based on Juliusz Słowacki's poem
premiere 6 XII 2019
Anhelli is a poetic journey to the snow hell, a land which makes people bad and harmful. A land that is just as horrifying as it is beautiful. The guide of Anhelli – the man-angel – is the Shaman, who has the knowledge of the forefathers. Our guide will be a Polish-Latvian artistic duo: Dariusz Przybylski and Margo Zālīte. He composes music full of expression, filled with emotion: delicate and subtle at times, and in other fragments blowing up with a sudden explosion of sounds. She thinks in pictures, creates stage compositions parallel to music and then breaks them when the viewer feels safe. Together, they build contemporary opera theatre close to the romantic visionariness.
A great recommendation for visionaries and poets (we guarantee that the level of inspiration will raise significantly after the performance).
