Bernal Opera in Palace on the Water, Warsaw

  

Summer vacation almost over. Poland was as usual busy and musical – four concerts, including two at the beautiful Łazienki Palace and park with wonderful pianist Zuzanna Całka. A dream come true!

   
 
I remember visiting the palace many times as a tourist or accompanying my dad, a restoration architect, when he had some professional business there. This time I was allowed into the part closed to the public – secret staircases, a glamorous dressing room for special guests… I am infinitely grateful to the last Polish king Stanislaw August for creating this beauty for generations to come! Not only did he hire the best artists but did some of the design himself. The acoustics in the ballroom was superb. Would love to come back!
