"Around 1785, the canon of Cadiz commissioned Haydn to compose instrumental music referring to the seven last words of Jesus Christ on the cross, which would fit the annual ceremony in the city’s cathedral during Lent”, the composer’s biographer, Georg August Griesinger, noted in 1810. That is how one of the most exceptional instrumental music cycles in the history – The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour On the Cross – Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze – was created.A story of unlucky lovers opens the Opera Rara 2016 season

The core of the next year's edition of one of the most recognizable early music festivals in Europe will be a presentation of three oratorios. Whatever the core, however, it needs a surrouding. Therefore, next to oratorios, the famous and the less known (and therefore, the more interesting), special works will appear, up to perhaps the most famous masterpiece in history: Mozart's Requiem. As every year, stages of Krakow will host crème de la crème of early music artists: Jordi Savall, Fabio Biondi, Ottavio Dantone. Also to return are the always welcomed Rinaldo Alessandrini and Marc Minkowski. We proudly present the repertoire of the 13th edition of the festival, which will start on 21 March and will last a week, until 27 March 2016.Misteria Paschalia 2016
