The National Theatre intends to make their shows available to the foreign visitors and international audiences in general. Therefore, we are planning to include performances with English subtitles into our season program on a regular basis.

We are beginning with the sophisticated and challenging project - the modern staging of one of the most notable works of the Polish Romanticism, which reflects the turbulent time in history of Poland while struggling for country's independence and preservation of Polish culture and political identity throughout 19th Century.

"Kordian" by Juliusz Słowacki is a splendid poetic drama, written in rhymed Polish alexandrines.

It is a study of a Polish revolutionary's psyche and Polish nation's tragic choice between dying heroically in the name of a noble idea or living a life of servility towards foreign rulers.

Premiere took place on 19 November 2015 on 250th Anniversary of the National Theatre.

We use English translation by Gerard T. Kapolka (published by The Green Lantern Press in 2011).

The play contains excerpts from Johann Wolfgang Goethe's "Faust" (trans. Adam Pomorski), Juliusz Słowacki's "Kordian" (trans. into English by Gerard T. Kapolka), fragments of the script of Stanisław Wyspiański's "Hamlet" directed by Jerzy Grzegorzewski and Wyspiański's drama "Liberation", as well as the fragments of Słowacki's poem "The Testament of Mine" and his drama "Samuel Zborowski".
