THE PEARL FISHERS, “Au fond du temple saint” – Matthew Polenzani (Nadir), Mariusz Kwiecień (Zurga)

Nadir (Matthew Polenzani) unexpectedly returns to the pearl fishers' community after years of adventures. Once alone with his close friend Zurga (Mariusz Kwiecień), the two  recall their last trip together: in Candi, they saw a beautiful woman at the temple of Brahma. They both fell in love with her at first sight, but they swore to forget her for the sake of their friendship. They now swear again to remain friends.


The baritone Mariusz Kwiecien fell ill during Act One of Pearl Fishers and had to be replaced at the break.
It was a Metropolitan Opera debut for his stand in, Alexander Birch Elliot.
The soprano Pretty Yende writes:
Last night was truly special in more ways than one. Alexander Birch Elliott made his last minute debut after our dear Colleague Mariusz Kwiecien fell ill in the first act. I can testify that with all the love from the global audience, the way The Metropolitan Opera House audience welcomes a new artist is unbelievably unique. It brought incredible sweet memories 💞 Congratulations Alexander, you were a force of nature and thank you for an unbelievably wonderful duet. It was truly special to do that scene with you without any rehearsal whatsoever together. Wishing our Mariusz Kwiecien a speedy recovery and looking forward to having him back soon, what a privilege to witness history and the bloom of someone’s journey…

Polish Baritone Mariusz Kwiecień Ends His Operatic Career

Famed Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecień has announced that he will end his singing career due to ongoing health issues.

Kwiecień told the Polish media that he had undergone his first spinal surgery in New York, sustaining a slipped disc injury during a performance of Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” at the Metropolitan Opera House. The issue reappeared after a performance of Verdi’s “Don Carlo” at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. The baritone had to undergo a complex surgery with the implant being inserted.

'There are other problems appearing now, and my movements onstage would be quite limited in such a situation. I don’t want that,' stated Kwiecień.
The Polish bartone has accepted the post as the Artistic Director of the Wrocław Opera for 2020-21.

“I have a lot to say about opera these days. I have sufficient background and experience from the greatest opera houses in the world. I have a huge number of wonderful friends, singers, directors and conductors, whom I will be delighted to invite to Wrocław,” added Kwiecień.

During his lengthy and rich career, Mariusz Kwiecień appeared on the biggest world stages, including the Metropolitan Opera House, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Opéra National de Paris, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Wiener Staatsoper, Bayerische Staatsoper, and Lyric Opera of Chicago, among others.
