Unique adaptation of a unique bel canto opera

Opera Roberto Devereux draws the theme from English history and it is the third portrayal of the Queen Elizabeth I.

Operetta by renowned composer rediscovered a quarter-century ago

At the peak of his success, the author of the greatest operetta favourites Die Csárdásfürstin and Gräfin Mariza set to work on musically and dramaturgically unconventional piece. We see Charleston and Slowfox competing with Vienna Waltz and Hungarian Czardas, just like characters from old Europe compete with the characters from the new world.

Adapted song cycle

In one of the most beautiful theater buildings in Central Europe, in the Historical Building of the Košice State Theater, we prepared a stage performance of Franz Schubert's song cycle "Winterreise" (Winter journey) performed by the world-famous Slovak tenor Pavel Bršlík and pianist Róbert Pechanec.

The only opera by a genius composer

The only opera by significant composer Ludwig van Beethoven received three different versions, and three separate premieres. However, only the last one, from 1814, on which the composer worked for 12 years, gained general admiration and was accepted by the European opera audience.
