Stanislaw Moniuszko's opera is known as one of the greatest 19th century Polish opera scores, with imaginative harmonies and colourful instrumentation. Written after the 1864 January Uprisings, Moniuszko set out to create an opera to raise the nation's spirits, bringing patriotic knights in armour onto the stage. The result is a grand-scale drama in which follows two brothers, Stefan and Zbigniew, as they venture out to the cursed, haunted Kalinowo Manor. However they soon discover the real danger lies not with the ghosts, but with the two beautiful Sword-bearers' daughters.Performers Tim Hicks, Jeremy Bowyer, James Edwards, Maria Jones, Saffron van Zwanenburg, Mark Saberton, William Molesworth, Erin Johnson, Michael Burke.
