The Supposed Miracle, or Cracovians and Highlanders is a two-act comic opera originally written by Wojciech Bogusławski to the music by Jan Stefani, or rather a Singspiel inspired by Mozart and his The Abduction from the Seraglio as well as The Magic Flute.

It was first staged in 1794 in the National Theatre in Warsaw. Since then is has appeared regularly on Polish stages and in the repertoire of home opera houses, while Leon Schiller claimed it to be the first national opera. The national character of the work relies on an attempt to capture the rural landscape, the jolly and coarse scenes in which the singing Cracovians cultivate their land and fight for it. Love, intrigues, clan conflict, singing and dancing. These ingredients sound like a ready-made script for a country musical or the Polish version of West Side Story. Closer to us than it might seem...
