The Story Behind
One of the most beautiful opera houses in Central Europe, the historic building of the State Theatre Košice in the east of Slovakia, is playing host to another unique project – a staged performance of Schubert´s song cycle Winterreise featuring Slovak star tenor Pavel Breslik accompanied by the acclaimed pianist Robert Pechanec. The performance was available to watch online.
„We are pleased to announce that our house is hosting the acclaimed Slovak tenor Pavel Breslik in a performance of the song cycle Winterreise by Franz Schubert. Mr. Breslik is accompanied by the internationally acclaimed pianist Robert Pechanec. Schubert´s cycle is a dramatic monologue about grief and love giving way to more existential despair and resignation where the winter´s journey becomes a synonym for a psychological and spiritual one“, said Roland Khern Toth, director of the opera ensemble of State Theatre Košice. The performance was directed by Anton Korenči and contained video art by Bea Kolbašová.
