Is mankind ready for space exploration? Stanley Kubrick’s SPACE ODYSSEY meets soap opera in SPACE OPERA, a new piece by young Polish composer Aleksander Nowak – first staged in 2015 by Poznań Opera.
Opera celebrates its past but lives in the present. It renews its appeal through the creativity of contemporary artists – singers, conductors, directors, writers and, above all, composers. The Opera Platform seeks to show the very best of later 20th and early 21st century opera and of what is being written today by the most innovative artists. It will show a selection of the most talked-about European opera premières in the theatre and aims to play a part in the technological development of opera for the future.
