Damian Tanajewski, General Director of the Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic, was appointed for the Podlasie regional coordinator for the bicentenary celebrations of the Year of Moniuszko. Next May marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of the great Polish composer, which is why the year 2019 was named The Year of Moniuszko, with Waldemar Dąbrowski, the General Director of the Great Theatre—National Opera in Warsaw as the representative of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage for the Moniuszko Bicentenary Celebrations. The anniversary is a great opportunity to popularise the oeuvre of Stanisław Moniuszko, and much depends on the engagement of local environments. The Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic will, as possible, support local initiatives, which may be submitted via e-mail: moniuszko@oifp.eu. We strongly encourage your participation!
