13. 4. 2018 14. 4. 2018

Oskar Nedbal doesn’t require much introduction to our audiences. The musician of European standing has shaped the Slovak National Theatre throughout its early years. He has entered history not merely as an outstanding conductor, but he also earned his rightful place in the world’s leading opera houses and concert halls as an authentic composer. The operetta Polish Blood has become his most fascinating piece that remains a gem in the theatre repertoire. The humorous piece tells a story of the landowner Bolek Baranski whose impish lifestyle and cronies brought him on the brink of bankruptcy. He hopes to solve his financial plight by marriage.This idea comes from his wealthy friend Zaremba who offers to him his daughter Helena. Since any solution of the kind to financial troubles is bound to give rise to curious difficulties, our production is steeped in amusing situations.
