About

Mariusz Kwiecien’s journey to the top of his profession has been remarkably rapid and assured for a young man from Kraków who arrived in New York at the age of 23. The Met’s current Don Giovanni, Polish baritone Mariusz, has won over audiences in many of the world’s greatest opera houses with his powerful interpretations.

For his first solo recital he employs his mellifluous and burnished voice to great effect in Polish, Russian and Czech arias which are very close to his heart. A collection of operatic gems, familiar and rare, including the electric final scene from Szymanowski’s ‘King Roger’.

Mariusz is the best in the world in these roles: an enormous talent and a complete performer...He’s dedicated and serious. Offstage he seems casual and hip—which he is—but he’s intensely professional, eager to work with conductors and directors. It shows in everything he gives on stage: never less than 100 per cent. No one today comes close to what Mariusz can do as Giovanni. He’s completely honest to the text and music, can suggest both sensuality and a mean streak. He gets the dramma giocoso part absolutely.” - Speight Jenkins, Seattle Opera

Onegin’s ‘Garden Aria’ graces his new Slavic Arias CD for harmonia mundi, a collection showcasing Kwiecien’s tonal beauty plus his finely nourished capability for legato singing.” - Opera, Dec 2011
