ORESTEIA
Written in 2011 as a commission from the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera, the dramopera Oresteia, directed by Maja Kleczewska, was premiered in that theatre in the following year. Notably, though there were no women performers in ancient dramas, the authors entrusted the parts of both Clytemnestra and Orestes to the excellent Polish actress Danuta Stenka, thus proposing a new way of interpreting that work.

‘Concerns about the purity of the genre are, I believe, unnecessary,’ said Agata Zubel in an interview. And indeed, she is not concerned. Her dramopera Oresteia for soloists, actors, choir, percussion, and electronics boldly juggles with various aesthetics and types of sound. Herself an outstanding singer, as a composer Zubel attaches great importance to the human voice as the most unique of all instruments. Each voice exists, after all, in only one copy. Interestingly, in Oresteia Stenka personates two opposites – she plays both the killer and the avenger. In this tale about the nature of evil and the vicissitudes of justice, her partners are Anna Zawisza (soprano), Michał Sławecki (countertenor), Tomasz Piluchowski (tenor), and The Polish Radio Choir, as well as percussionists: Krzysztof Niezgoda, Leszek Lorent, and Tamara Kurkiewicz. The spectacle is conducted by Szymon Wyrzykowski.
