Opera-Myth "Ukraine - Terra Incognita". Series 3. The Myth of Love

The Myth of Love is the third part of the contemporary Ukrainian Opera-Myth "Ukraine - Terra Incognita". Ancient ritual songs, unique Ukrainian polyphony, free jazz, video art, new symphonic music, modern choreography, futuristic folk costumes - all of this is combined in a new unusual and exquisite opera.

Opera-Myth is dedicated to the warrior and singer Wassyl Slipak and all the defenders of Ukraine.

🌹 "Love is the most beautiful feeling. In the Ukrainian song, it is sung in a full palette," says the author and director of the opera Ulyana Horbachevska.


From the libretto:

Love as a game.

Love as a burning passion and a sensory bliss.

Love as waiting.

Love as the subtlest vibrations.

It has both boundless peace and explosive power.

It is the cause of everything: life and death.


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. With those who are able to hear and feel. Those who understand the fragility of beauty and the value of freedom.

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.
