It was in 1912 that Karol Szymanowski made the first sketches of his one-act opera Hagith, a work dedicated to Prince W?adys?aw Lubomirski, who supplied him with the libretto by his friend, Vienna-based writer Felix Dörmann. The score was ready in October 1913, yet the first performance did not take place until nine years later. On 13th May 1922 the opera, based on the Biblical story of King David (Old King) and the girl Abishag (Hagith), was performed at the Warsaw Grand Theatre, with Maria Mokrzycka, Ignacy Dygas and Stanis?aw Gruszczy?ski in solo parts and Emil M?ynarski conducting.
