The Passenger by Mieczyslaw Wajnberg is much more than a stage or musical work: It is a testament to the cruel 20th century, telling about totalitarian regimes which led to annihilation of millions of lives. Completed in 1968 in Moscow, the artwork by Mieczyslaw Wajnberga and librettist Alexander Medvedev, plenty of universal, anti-totalitarian significance, waited for its world stage premiere until 2010. In Russia, it was only in 2016 that the Theatre of Opera and Ballet in Yekaterinburg made the effort to fully stage this extremely important opera. The present DVD, issued in cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute, is a registration of this excellent Russian performance.
