This is a late summer favourite for Sopot residents, when the city authorities put on an evening of entertainment in the beautiful surroundings of the Forest Opera, as a token of gratitude to everyone for their contribution to a successful summer season. Initiated by the president of Sopot, Jacek Karnowski and with the support of the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Sopot, the evening gives the regularly sold-out crowd the chance to enjoy an evening of music and entertainment from well-known artists.
This year’s concert takes its theme from the fact the Forest Opera is celebrating its 110th anniversary and the evening will revisit the music that has been performed here since its inception in 1909.
During the evening the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Sopot, under the direction of Wojciech Rajski and with guest soloists Aleksandra Kubas-Kruk and Marcin Bronikowski, will perform arias from popular operas such as ‘The Haunted Manor’, ‘Halka’ and ‘The Countess’ by Polish composer Stanisław Moniuszko; the overture to Beethoven’s opera ‘Fidelio'; the ‘Toreador’ song from the opera ‘Carmen’ by Georges Bizet and 'Musetta’s Waltz’ from Pucinni’s ‘La Boheme'. It’s not just opera that the Forest Opera is famous for though and this will be reflected in the performance of popular Polish songs which are well-known from the many years of the Sopot Song Festival. The concert will be conducted by Artur Orzech.
You don’t have to be a resident to come along and enjoy a great evening of entertainment in one of the most wonderful venues in Poland, if not Europe. Tickets can be purchased for just 12 or 15 PLN and there’s a discount if you are a Sopot resident and have a Karta Sopocka. To buy a ticket either stop by the Sopot Cultural Information Point in the main square or the Forest Opera ticket office at ul. Moniuszki 12.
The concert is funded by the City of Sopot
