Ariadne on Naxos is an intriguing, imaginative work, full of surprises and dell'arte jokes. Hugo von Hofmannsthal's libretto combines the high art of opera with the opera buffa element. Embedded in the circus environment is the Minotaur myth, fused seamlessly with Venetian carnival and bacchanalia. The main plot focuses on the story of an ideal, but sensual romantic love. Directed by Włodzimierz Nurkowski and designed by Anna Sekuła, this spectacular performance is a must-see show.
