The Csardas Princes is arguably the most successful and renown piece of Imre Kalman work. It has been entertaining viewers since its 1915 premiere in Vienna. It is the love story of Sylva (varieties artist) and Edwin (Lippert Weylersheim prince) presented in comedy terms, accompanied by Hungarian melodies of hit csardases, music that encourages both dancers on stage and viewers to dance.
Our production will allow the viewers to travel in time and take them to the 1930s, where we are going to entertain the audience with the Old Cinema atmosphere on The New Year’s Eve and the carnival of 2020.
The staging was taken care of by the inhabitants of Gdańsk : Anna Ferdyniak – Kołodziej (musician, educator, headmaster of kindergarten) and Grzegorz Piotr Kołodziej (artist-singer, speech-therapist, assistant professor at the University of Gdańsk) – a married couple, full-time parents of three, now debuting as directors, creators and originators of the play.
We are very proud to announce that our local, Tricity artists will perform at our show. Those experienced performers know the stage very well and understand viewers tastes perfectly, which will guarantee the highest quality of the play.
