Farewell to the carnival

Etude „The Couple-in-Love in Venice” (music: J. Offenbach)The performance "Farewell to the Carnival" (2008) consists of six stage etudes arranged both to the music of Baroque and of the 19th century opera. The figures, inspired by the unique private collection of Venetian costumes and masks, relate only marginally to their historic or artistic prototypes. Quite surely it is not a return to the "commedia dell’arte" characters. Also the musical background was created according to the principle of free associations.

Idea, scenario, directing and production: Beata Wielopolska
Costumes: Bożena Wielopolska i Beata Wielopolska
Choreography: Ryszard Wojtala
