Contemplating the present disheartening turmoil at the Warszawska Opera Kameralna and my heartrending attendance at the next to last performance of Mozart's delightful confection La Finta Semplice, I feel that much of what I wrote five years ago concerning the turmoil of those years remains essentially relevant to the present case. I cannot remain silent and nostalgically look back to the 'golden years'.
Below are links to my extensive blog entries of that period and I suggest that those who are as appalled as I am by the apparent demise of this inspirational European artistic treasure should read with an air of nostagia what I wrote all those years ago - essentially we have returned to a most uncertain future. Stefan Sutkowski has left the building. Can his creative spirit return?
