Open-air operas in Targ Węglowy are popular not only among the opera fans. Once a year, on a summer evening, citizens of Gdańsk gather in front of a big screen, watch the opera and listen to the live commentary of an opera expert, Jerzy Snakowski. The first two edtions of the event – live broadcast of operas from Valencia – were a part of an European project Viva Europa. In 2012, even with the project over, IKM (City Culture Institute) decided to continue the idea and chose Verdi’s “La Traviatta”, starring Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazona.
