Marek Piaček – APOLLOOPERA

Admission:  16 €     Tickets

APOLLOOPERA, a melodrama depicting a bombing for choir, narrator and trombone is based on a true event – on June 16, 1944 the Allies bombed the Bratislava refinery Apollo. The plot includes real news from the life of the interwar multilingual city of Bratislava related to Apollo. The daily life is confronted here with the strained events of the 1940s. Apolloopera does not deal with political affairs. The depicted civil life of “Apollo people” may be a metaphor for any human being and his/her powerless existence facing dehumanization and technocratic “complex solutions” of the problems of the entire society. The libretto draws from archive material supplemented by period poetry and the author’s allusions to various poetic and prosaic styles.
