George Gershwin i Ira Gershwin

Crazy for You

The premiere

03 / 03 / 2017
Description

The greatest classics of the genre. A musical which refers to the best traditions of “The golden era of Broadway” of the 20s and the 30s. An interesting plot, humorous dialogues and a lot of the most beautiful music of George Gershwin, they are a recipe for a hit which has charmed so many viewers all around the world.

The story of love of a rich boy from New York, or rather a son of a wealthy mother, who loves dance, singing and music above all, and a simple girl from Nevada – a daughter of an ex-director of a failed theatre… It sounds trite, however this plot, which may definitely be called a music comedy, is filled with full-blooded characters, perverse situations and an enormous amount of dancing and singing.

It all results in the fact that now, 25 years after the world premiere, we may consider the masterpiece of Gershwin brothers (George’s brother – Ira is the author of the lyrics to the songs) timeless and one of the most significant musicals in history. That is why, we are pleased to invite you to our Opera where the creators of the show are waiting together with the soloists, the orchestra, the dancers and the actors of Polish musical stages selected in a national casting. Franz Schubert once said: “Happy are those who have music in their hearts and a smile on their lips”. Crazy for You was created exactly for this reason, and we are preparing it especially for you!
