Elżbieta Sikora’s opera ‘Madame Curie’ performed in China

September 3 and 4, 2014, 7.30 p.m.

Performances were held in Tianjin on 3 and 4 September at Tianjin Grand Theatre. The opera Madame Curie directed by Mark Weiss was premiered in 2011 in Paris. The opera was performed by ten soloists, choir and a dancer from Baltic Dance Theatre. The artists were accompanied by a full symphony orchestra with additional sounds of accordion, electric guitar and electronic music played from computer. The libretto is inspired by the private life of Maria Skłodowska-Curie, the only double Nobel Prize winner in the history, whose scientific achievements have changed the face of science. ’She was just a human, walking the earth like anyone else, having her own life filled with love and science in all their forms’ – says the composer -’I wanted to show her from that side – the side which shows her as a full-fledged human entity, and the fact that she was a woman – it’s a complete coincidence’. The project initiating a large series of Polish cultural events in China.
