Watch the trailer of the TV version of Opera-Myth

What is Ukraine fighting for? What in the modern world can make people leave their careers, go to war, and give their lives for the sake of others? How do the meanings embedded in ancient songs come to life and change the fate of a nation?

The modern Opera-Myth "Ukraine - Terra Incognita" tells about the Ukraine you never knew. Ancient ritual songs, unique Ukrainian polyphony, free jazz, video art, new symphonic music, modern choreography, futuristic folk costumes - all this in an opera like no other.

Opera-Myth is dedicated to the soloist of the Paris Opera, Ukrainian Wassyl Slipak, who died defending freedom. The opera is also dedicated to hundreds of artists and thousands of men and women who are now defending Ukraine.

We present the trailer of the TV-version of our opera, which will soon be available to watch in many different countries. Now, in the face of the threat of destruction, it is important for Ukrainians to preserve their culture and tell the world about it.  Please help us in this cause - share the TV version of the Opera-Myth "Ukraine - Terra Incognita" with your friends. Those who are able to hear and feel. Those who understand the fragility of beauty and the value of freedom.

Hear the unknown singing of the Ukrainian soul!⠀

The project of the TV version is funded from the Stabilization Fund for Culture and Education 2022 by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany and the Goethe-Institut.

The Opera-Myth project is organized by YMCA Lviv with the Wassyl Slipak Foundation.
