Halka – 'O Jaśko, mój drogi!'

Extracts | Moniuszko

Act I. As Janusz (Łukasz Goliński) and Zofia are celebrating their engagement, Halka (Monika Mych-Nowicka), a simple peasant girl, wails plaintively for her lost love. Coming to comfort the young woman, Janusz breaks out in a cold sweat. It turns out that he is Halka’s lost love, and that he once promised to marry her but then disappeared. Away from the guests, he cradles and kisses her, and arranges to meet her in the evening. Directed by Paweł Passini and conducted by Gabriel Chmura.
