SYMPHONICA – a multimedia musical show

Travel through an extraordinary world of artistic sensations. A world in which the power of electric guitars interacts with the subtle and classy opera singing, and everything is filled in with the sound of a symphony orchestra. Sound, movement, image, and light form a metaphysical spectacle, and against this beautiful scenery, you can hear timeless rock and metal ballads. This world is called Symphonica – 6th November 2015 at ICE Kraków. The originator and artistic director of the show is Krakow conductor and musical producer – Mikołaj Blajda.

 

The premiere of the show took place on 14 September 2014 at the Artur Malawski Philharmonic in Rzeszów. For six months, over 50 people worked on preparing it. Before the premiere, nearly 160 hours of musical and stage rehearsals took place. For the needs of the spectacle, extensive film footage was prepared, presented as visualisation during the concert. Great emphasis was placed on the preparation of costumes, make-up, lighting, and stage effects. During the concert, we will hear the works of such bands as Metallica, Scorpions, Aerosmith, Nightwish, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Faith No More, Deep Purple, and Soundgarden.

Musicians taking part in the project have been carefully selected.* They are artists who regularly work with G. Turnau, A. Sikorowski, M. Rodowicz, or Golec uOrkiestra. The same goes for the soloists, each of whom has years-long stage experience and has participated in many television talent shows. It is important to emphasise the input of the musicians of the Artur Malawski Philharmonic Orchestra, which gave the project a unique, symphonic climate with its sound.
