Summary/Abstract: The author addresses the topic of Maja Kleczewska’s harshly criticised Orestes (Narodowy Theatre and Wielki Theatre – Opera Narodowa in Warsaw, premiere: 14.04.2012). He reminds us that this performance was originally meant to be a “dramatic opera,” in which Agata Zubel, composer for the performance, was meant to play a role equal to that of the director. In fact, Kleczewska dominated the show, filling it with gratuitous brutality. However, when Zubel is allowed to speak with her sophisticated compositions, it turns out that this music could have had much more to say.
