The opera Have a Good Day! focuses on the inner lives of cashiers in a shopping centre. Faceless, robot-like shop workers found in everyday life are transformed into unique and lively characters. The mosaic of different destinies is transformed into one poem suggesting the pleasure of consumption. To avoid any moral or condemnatory suggestion, a critical attitude towards capitalism is expressed through humor, paradox, irony and poetry. The opera has received national and international awards (including main prize at the international competition "Music Theatre NOW"), and is widely touring through the continents, its libretto is translated into 11 languages.
