“Elements” is a symphony by Pawel Pudlo, which became the basis for a multidisciplinary project of the same title, combining music, art and ecological education. The premiere took place in 2018 at the Sudeten Philharmonic. The philharmonic symphony orchestra also played on recycled instruments - from washing machine drums to plastic bottles. Almost 200 people were involved in the creation of the project, including musicians and academic staff of the University of Wroclaw, and the educational activities accompanying the project were addressed to 500 elementary and high school students.
“Violemi” is a fantasy opera that premiered in 2010 with the engagement of more than 90 people. It's an epic story about maturity and responsibility, as well as the related difficult choices. Written in a legend-like style, it stands out due to its fresh form – it combines elements of opera, musical and symphonic film music.
