Here is the national theater or opera house of Warszawa. Besides the Royal Philharmonic, this is the musical summit in Poland, with it's official name is: Teatr Wielki - Opera Narodowa. The Opera house was founded in 1778. The whole year there are performances in music and dance, often world reknown groups come here to show their best. Warszawa's musical past is dominated by the famous composer Chopin, who lived and worked in this town and created most of his magnificent piano-pieces here.
I suppose this year, 2005, is the year of another edition of the International Piano
Competition in Warsaw. If you are not coming to this city with this sole purpose in mind already, consider going to the National Philharmonic for a concert or two in the first round. Ten years ago I had a Polish friend buying tickets for me because there was double standard system in place. The foreigners used to pay five times more than the locals. If this system is still in place, consider negotiating with a Pole to avoid paying an exorbitant amount. There are helpful people everywhere. Second and later rounds become more and more difficult to attend.
National Philharmonic - a great oportunity for music lovers... let your ears to dance with joy in this wonderful location :)
Founded in 1899, the Warsaw Philharmonic (Filharmonia Narodowa) performs the best of Polish and foreign classical music throughout the year. The concert season for 1998 starts in October.
