UNIQUE OUTDOOR PERFORMANCE
Each year in June, we warmly invite you to an operetta staged Friday evening in unusual scenery of the park belonging to the park-palace complex of Młoszowa. The performance takes place in the park behind the palace where the lay of the land constitutes a natural amphitheatre. The palace attracts attention to itself with a combination of different architectural styles and arouses people’s interest with its unusual history.
The outdoor performances in Młoszowa have been organized for more than ten years, and it was here where, in 2005, a great show entitled “Here where Jan Kiepura sang” was staged. It was produced as a part of the Jan Kiepura European Festival initiated by Bogusław Kaczyński – an eminent music critic and expert.
