Fundacja K.B. Akademia Polskiego Tańca i Muzyki im. S.A. Poniatowskiego

The mission of Frederickiana, established in 1999, is to promote Polish history and culture. We aim to create accomplished, original performances based on distinct storylines. We are focussed on breaking the boundaries of ballet as shown today. No one apart from us has had the courage to interpret Chopin’s music as a vision of Poland’s history – the struggle in the fight for independence together with associating his masterpieces not only with Polish Uprisings but also with Polish heritage.

Performance synopsis

This one-act performance is a biographical portrait of Frédéric Chopin’s life, based on his music. His patriotism and emotional engagement in the fight for Poland’s sovereignty led to the creation of his best-known piano pieces. By means of their powerful revolutionary character, many of his compositions were regarded as a symbol of independence, which gave hope for the Polish nation to finally achieve its freedom. This performance of universal values is suitable for viewers of all ages.
