The Krakow Opera, established in 1954, has been proving its importance from season to season, thanks to the excellent quality of its artistic endeavours. Throughout the years, the Opera has worked with some of the world’s and Poland’s most outstanding artists, including conductors: Kazimierz Kord, Antoni Wicherek, Robert Satanowski, Jerzy Katlewicz, Ewa Michnik, Wojciech Michniewski, Andrzej Straszyński, Tadeusz Kozłowski, Jan Latham-Koenig, and Aurelio Canonici, producers: Tadeusz Kantor, Lidia Zamkow, Marek Weiss-Grzesiński, and Laco Adamik, and stage designers: Józef Szajna, Andrzej Kreutz Majewski, Kazimierz Wiśniak, Krystyna Zachwatowicz, and Zofia de Ines.

Finally, on 13 December, with Devils of Loudun – Krzyszof Penderecki's first work, the Krakow Opera’s new house was inaugurated. This modern building houses the Main Stage which seats an audience ofThe audience view of the Main Stage 760 persons, the Chamber Stage which seats 150 persons, and a restaurant.
The Krakow Opera’s repertoire includes the world’s and Poland’s greatest operatic works, ballet performances, operettas, and music shows directed at young audiences. It stages about 200 performances a year, with 98% of seats occupied.
