The Mozart Music Festival!
7 festival days, around 200 artists, 13 concerts, traditionally in the beautiful scenery of Oliwa Park, Gdansk Oliwa Archcathedral and Uphagen’s House. The 13th International Mozart Festival Mozartiana begins on 19 August and runs through to 25 August.
Julia Lezniewa, the Vienna Baroque Orchestra, the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Kaja Danczowska, the Otar Magradze Jazz Band from Georgia – these are just some of the many artists of this year’s Festival edition. This year, the organisers have prepared Bastien and Bastienne for opera lovers, directed and with set design by Leszek Madzik, and – thinking about children in particular – the marionette show Don Giovanni, presented by the National Marionette Theatre in Prague. The main idea of the festival has not changed – promotion of classical music through presenting Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s works in different styles, performed by notable artists.

The event is organised by the Polish Chamber Choir, celebrating its 40th anniversary, and the initiator – Jan Lukaszewski, the director and conductor of the choir. The festival has been made possible thanks to financial support from the City of Gdansk, in cooperation with the Gdansk National Museum and the Museum of Gdansk.
The Gdansk Tourism Organisation is a partner to the event.
