Notes & Reviews:

Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien, recognised as one of the leading baritones before the public today, opened the 2008-2009 season in Paris with his Bolshoi Theatre debut, performing the title role in Eugene Onegin, which he reprised later in the season with the Bavarian State Opera, replacing an indisposed Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Last Autumn he performed the title role in Don Giovanni at Covent Garden, followed by Enrico in Lucia and Marcello at the Met, where he appears frequently. Future engagements include a new production of Szymanowski's King Roger at the Bastille in June and July 2009 and Count Almaviva at Covent Garden in June 2010.

"Kwiecien is scoring a triumph in the title role, a part everywhere identified with his immediate predecessor, Siberian baritone Dmitri HvorostovskyKwiecien commands the stage with his good looks, rich and resonant voice and the volatile intensity with which he throws himself into the role of the aloof Russian playboy." Chicago Tribune

"Tatiana Monogarova is a particularly lovely Tatiana, her warmly vibrant voice fresh as her touchingly beautiful face and well cared-for as her slender, graceful figure. The Lenski, Andrey Dunaev, is a credit to the line of Russian lyric tenors he now represents, his tone ingratiating..." Gramophone Magazine, September 2009
