“I have never attempted to explore what makes a marriage truly happy. However, I think that two people should match each other like a pair of horses having: an even gait, an even turn, equal fire - then the journey together is pleasant and far less of a drag. But when one is swift, and the other lazy, one is soft, and the other hardy, when one is pulling while the other is jumping – then the devil may take it!”
Here is Count Fredro at his best! Love affairs were one of his favourite themes. The lightness and zest with which he presented them, inspired choreographers of the oncoming premiere Fredriana at the Teatr Wielki - National Opera. Fredro's comedies, combined with Moniuszko's humorous yet mysterious, lyrical yet dramatic, music, turn out to be a perfect duo. The audience will have a chance to see this duo in both parts of the ballet evening at the Teatr Wielki - National Opera.
