OPERA FOR THOUSANDS – Zoltán Kodály: Székely fonó (The Spinning Room)

OPERA FOR THOUSANDS – Zoltán Kodály: Székely fonó (The Spinning Room)
22. June 2017, Thursday 19:30 h
Miskolc National Theatre - Grand Theatre

singspiel | Guest performance by the Hungarian State Opera House

“A people can best be known through their folk songs,” claimed Zoltán Kodály, whose main ambition as a composer, collector of folk songs and music teacher was to inculcate a love for the Hungarian folk song and to cultivate a knowledgeable audience.
The Spinning Room is the epitome of Kodály’s efforts. When the Opera commissioned a full-length version of the work from the composer in 1931, it wasn’t an opera that Kodály intended to write – instead his aim was to rediscover the Hungarian folk song and rely on its simple dramatic power.
Kodály was of Polish descent on his mother’s side. And now, breaking with the conventions, the audience will get the chance to see through the eyes of a Polish director, Michał Znaniecki, how a foreign artist perceives this quintessentially Hungarian work.

Conductor: Balázs Kocsár
Directed by: Michał Znaniecki

Tickets: 500/300/200 Ft
