Very „Haunted Manor” at Royal Polish Opera

„It’s a haunted, very haunted manor….” sings the main male character, Stefan, in his grand aria in the 3rd Act of „The Haunted Manor” – national polish opera composed by Stanisław Moniuszko, who’d be 200 years old on the 5th of May 2019.

Yesterday, once more, I sang the role of Zbigniew – Stefan’s elder brother – second main male character of the piece.

It was the last stage production of Ryszard Peryt, general director of Royal Polish Opera. Having set the staging with symbols referring to the past that somehow still lives in and around us, the recent Mr. Peryt’s passing puts Royal Polish Opera’s „Haunted Manor” in a transcendent light.

I won’t even try to verbalise something non-verbalisable, only to say that this extraordinary staging confirms what we often do not want to accept or even remember of: what we see and are able to understand, is only one small layer of the reality we live in.

I also strongly believe that the very last scene announces the true legacy of Mr. Peryt’s Opus. Requiescat in Pace…

Tuba, mirum spargens sonum…

….per sepulchra regionum, coget omnes anthe thronum.

By this famous excerpt from Dies Irae sequence starts every bass his adventure with Mozart’s Requiem

I’m glad to announce that on the 20th of October 2018 in Warsaw I’m about to sing it again too, together with many of my good colleagues and great friends.

It’s a blessing to sing such music, I also feel blessed to perform it in a company of friends, I hope we’d all be even more blessed to sing it for a public consisting of YOU!

New date for the Liederabend in Hannover

As you might already know, we had to postpone our concert in Hannover that was planned for 19.08.18, due to independent from us, organisational reasons (large stage, open-air concert of balkan music practically at the entrance of the museum – on the square in the direct nearby area).


We’ve already got new date!


It’s 4th of November 2018.



We’re going to perform works composed by F. Schubert, K. Brochocka, T. Baird and M. Wajnberg, main part of which id going to be german first performances.


More details very soon, stay tuned and save the date! This time for sure! 🙂


For couple of years, together with my friends gathered under the aegis of foundation we have been organising concerts such as Haendel’s Messiah and Bach’s St. John’s and St. Matthew’s Passion to celebrate those specific periods of preparation: Advents and Lents.


Because we believe

1) that pieces of music serve not (only) as exhibits in the museum – they might inspire even better, if played in a certain moment of the year,

2) people not accustomed to listening to the classical music could be more encouraged to attend concerts not particularly played in big, prestigious concert halls,

3) an innovative way of funding a cultural event can activate the potential audience and in a long-term perspective can build tight relations between the artists and their audience.

4) introducing and maintaining certain regularity in organising such concerts can create a demand for more classical music in the public sphere – which is and should be one of most important aims for every classical artist aware of the decrease in this area.

We fight the best we can, this time by organising Bach’s St. John’s Passion in Warsaw, using only crowdfunding way of sponsorship. We have to collect the whole sum, only than we’ll be able to perform.

So do not hesitate to check out how are we doing on (it’s in polish but easily translatable).

If you’d like to help us, please contact me, I’d be glad to guide you!

What I mainly do in my spare time nowadays?

I guess, the photo above explains it clearly 🙂

Travelling is one of the actions one has to take on when being a singer. We all travel quite much, looking for new opportunities, taking on new chances, new risks. Sometimes you just do not know, where you land next week, month, season. The only healthy attitude is staying flexible and doing your best. Sometimes you’re planning the next months so exactly, that it is hardly possible to put a needle into those plans. And than, comes the phone call and says it’s all cancelled due to some better or worse reason. Or it’s 180 grades reversed: you receive an e-mail which persuades you to change thoroughly your plans for the next months. Than you might have to change not only your schedule, but also the place where you and your family live. Just off the cuff.

Being constantly prepared for off the cuff important life changes is kind of a skill. A „must have” for me.

Sounds shocking?

I am an opera singer, what’s your super power? 😉

Lazy Sunday 30.10.16. Short update.

I haven’t had much time during the last weeks to write anything. Directly after we’d finished the production of „Les Huguenots” (next performance on Sat. 5.11.16, it’ll be #4), we’ve started Entführung aus dem Serail. The opening night of this one is on the 27.11.16.

Today I’m having a day off, not many of those have I had since September.

The more we work, the better we become (was it Paolo Coelho who said that? ;P ).

Have a great Sunday!
