The title of our educational performance for children refers to Frederic Chopin’s work - Fantasy on Polish Airs in A major, Op. 13 – composed when he was eighteen. In our theatrical fantasy, the protagonists are children, who in a dynamic, staged lesson learn about Polish national dances – oberek, mazurek, kujawiak, polonaise, and krakowiak. The guide is a very special teacher – a virtuoso violinist. In each scene, the viewers can hear not only the specific dances, but also some instrumental and vocal works of Polish composers, for whom our native folklore served as creative inspiration. The program includes works by Ogiński, Chopin, and Wieniawski. The action of the theatrical performance will first transport the audience to the time of Chopin’s childhood. After that they will dance the kujawiak with Jan Kiepura, and visit the sanctuary in Święta Lipka. They will also be guests in the house of little Janek. With his mother, a pianist, he will lead the audience into the magical world of music and dance. What is most important, though, is that Polish national dances will be presented by Mazowsze’s fantastic ballet and orchestra.
