Freshly adapted by graduates from the Bratislava University of Performing and Drama Arts in cooperation with the theatre, the Italian opus will feature the most significant young talents: singers, instrumentalists, set designers, and filmmakers, many of whom regularly perform at the Slovak National Theatre or Prague's State Opera and win international contests in their field. Well-known opera singer Martin Babjak and members of the Slovak National Theatre Opera choir will join the young cast.
