More than hundred costumes resemble those from the beginning of 19th century, The Ball at Senator’s place sung and danced, realistic and panorama paintings like in 19th century theatres. A spectacular work. Almost a whole brilliant ensemble of the Polski Theatre on the stage. For the first time in history the whole Mickiewicz’s play could be experienced. The history of theatre is being written at 3 Zapolskiej Street. Forefathers’ Eve. Part III carefully read with open mind.

Reviews

This production is attractive, impressive and pawky one. [...]
Zadara’s Forefathers’ Eve seduces by its spectacular [form] and workshop perfection, as well as its pawky humor. [The production] seems to play with yearning for the grand productions and for the theatre "as it once was", and to mock at an allusive reading of classics – critical as well as rooted in mixture of religion and patriotism. [The production] doesn’t force any grand diagnosis. We are able to remind the play instead, as in an attractive, multimedia museum. Who really remembers Mickiewicz nowadays?
