Chopin educational musical

Musical spectacle with participation of students of the Warsaw’s schools resulted in editing educational package for people who want to work with young students in an unconventional way.

The musical premiere took place in December 2010 in the Capital Centre of Cultural Education at Jezuicka Street 4, Warsaw, Poland. Since then the spectacle started to be more popular. Next spectacle took place on the 3rd of February in the Bielańskie Centreof Cultural Education and it was registered with the use of digital technique. 

The musical is titled: "Fryderyk Chopin Life Concert" (pl. "Koncert życia Fryderyka Chopina") is based on the Composer’s biography. At the beginning it was only the starting point for workshops for teachers, day-room supervisors and school coordinators of the Chopin Year interested in the project as a form of children education and integration. The suggestion of staging a spectacle with the participation of students came from Arkadiusz Walczak, director of the Warsaw Centre of Educational and Social Innovations and Trainings (WCIES). Thanks to good cooperation with teachers from schools in Warsaw casting was well organized and soon rehearsals started. 

Arleta Niciewicz composed the libretto and wrote texts for the songs. Michał Jóźwiak and Monika Gromek composed music completed with excerpts of Fryderyk Chopin works, with the exception of the Epitaph for Chopin (pl. "Epitafium dla Chopina") composed by Arleta Niciewicz. Tomasz Daszczuk is the spectacle director. Grażyna Kilbach is responsible for the choreography of the musical, and Katarzyna Podurgiel – for the scenes with puppets. Gabryella Miłowska-Moląg is the author of the stage design. 

WCIES, encouraged with the success, published educational package consisting of libretto, songs with score, description of dances and movement choreography, ideas, staging and methodical guidelines for exercises with students in the scope of singing and dance.
