Take a virtual tour of the VIVA MONIUSZKO! exhibition

Currently on display at the Opera Gallery at the Teatr Wielki in Warsaw is the exhibition VIVA MONIUSZKO!. Those unable to visit it personally now have a chance to take a virtual tour of the show!

The exhibition marks Stanisław Moniuszko's 200th birthday, presenting him not only as the father of Polish opera but also a conductor, educator and general manager of an opera house. The photographs, lithographies, scores, manuscripts and other exhibits paint a fresh portait of the artist: respectful, yet closer to our sensibilities. Moniuszko emerges as a flesh and blood figure who travelled the world, cared how his work was received by his contemporaries, interacted with other musicians and Polish intellectual circles of the mid-19th century.
