King Matt the First directed by Piotr Sieklucki is a vivid tale set at a royal court full of music, dancing and visualisations.The eponymous protagonist is always accompanied by the Master of Ceremony and Felek. Guests from far away countries appear too and so do some domineering ministers, who are the nightmare of the little king. The following personae appear on stage in the form of projections: the Mayor of the City of Krakow Jacek Majchrowski, Janusz Marchwiński, Jan Peszek, Jerzy Stuhr, Andrzej Grabowski and Tomasz Schimscheiner.
