Stanisław Moniuszko’s Halka in the Warsaw version in Italian with Capella Cracoviensis conducted by Jan Tomasz Adamus.

Halka is an opera by Polish composer Stanisław Moniuszko to a libretto written by Włodzimierz Wolski, a young Warsaw poet with radical social views. It is part of the canon of Polish national operas. It is considered one of Moniuszko’s greatest operas. Noted musicologist Carl Dalhaus in his book Nineteenth-century Music describes Halka as “The Polish national opera” (Dalhaus 222). The music in Halka is highly melodic, deeply lyrical and Polish in character. It includes moving poetic arias like Gdybym rannym słonkiem (If by the Morning Sun) and Szumią jodły (Sighing Firs), scenes depicting the life of the Polish nobility (szlachta) and highlanders (Gorals), as well as spectacular dance sequences. The story is that of the tragic love of the title character, the highlander girl Halka, for the noble Janusz, who abandons her to wed the daughter of the Esquire. It is a tale of jealousy and sacrifice.
