Opis

The harsh fate of one of the eminent European paintings by Hans Memling, "The Last Judgement", has become an inspiration for the authors of the opera. The new production presents a mysticism about the origins and significance of the triptych, the struggles of its creator and its audience, who could admire it in different circumstances, historical realities and European cities. The wandering of the image began with the loot that brought him to Gdansk and is now a permanent exhibit. The scene of the Baltic Opera proposes the "final judgment" of Krzysztof Knittel, thanks to the multitude of operatic means, to discover this work in a new context and to bend over the fundamental theme of human life in the context of good and evil.

The music has created a critically acclaimed contemporary composition by Krzysztof Knittel. The libretto was created by Mirosław Bujko's. The main parties will be prepared by excellent Polish soloists. It was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage under the "Collections" program - the priority of "Composite Orders", implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.
