David Pountney to revive Penderecki opera

Polish National Opera will include Penderecki’s The Black Mask as one of four new productions next season. The director is the British opera chief Sir David Pountney, whose championing of Weinberg’s The Passenger has earned him a Polish passport, among other honours.

Also in the next Warsaw season are Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos, Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra, Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet and The Ghost of the Voivode by a forgotten Polish composer Ludwig Grossman (1835-1915).
