5 minutes of brilliance: Mariusz Kwiecien

Primavera arrivata a Parigi!

 I'm not into flowers and sweet colory stuff (quite the opposite actually), but the wake of Spring is always irresistible... It's sunny, the new green is coming and the flowers are popping up all over the place...  

Ah, this entry is not about Spring. It's to suggest you to take 5 minutes of your time and... 

enjoy  Mariusz Kwiecien, a baritone who we admired last June in Paris for his terrific Krol Roger; he's currently stealing the show (Le Nozze) at  Lyric Opera of Chicago. Listen to his Count Almaviva & enjoy (recorded this week in Chicago)

You can catch Mariusz singing Almaviva in London next June, and in Munich in July.


  1. quite right --- have already booked tickets for both munich performances :).

  2. I hope to catch one too ;)

  3. we seem to have some (opera) interests in common (people and such) - i will see tcherniakov's carmelites this week. i went to the matinee and since then i wonder what he will do :).

    mr mariusz i have also seen as don and as onegin - both great.

    very nice blog by the way (discovered it recently)!

  4. Thanks!

    Lucky you to be able to see Les Carmelites right off the bat. I hope I'll get to see it in April (well, at least I hope I will ;) )
