the Polish Royal Opera is happy to invite you to our new opera staging. Soon – 4 and 11 July in the Royal Theatre we will host premiere performance of LA SERVA PADRONA / GIOVANNI BATTISTA PERGOLESI directed by Jitka Sokalska under the baton of Krzysztof Garstka.

The press conference dedicated to the premiere of La serva padrona (Servant turned Mistress) will be held on Tuesday 30 June in the Royal Theatre in the Old Orangery in the Royal Łazienki Museum in Warsaw.
Everyone interested in attending the conference, please contact Anna Czajka (email@example.com) before 29.06, 12.00 to get press credentials.
