Piotr Beczała



The hottest name among lyrical tenors in the world. In 2018 he was awarded an ‘operatic Oscar’ – the International Opera Award for the best male singer. For years he has been performing the most important tenor parts at the Metropolitan Opera and the Wiener Staatsoper. Yet another, after Jan Kiepura, ‘boy from Silesia’ who effortlessly conquers subsequent operatic stages with his singing and acting prowess. His successful career is compared to Luciano Pavarotti’s, while Piotr Beczała is often called his successor. He rarely sings in Poland, which is why the concert accompanied by the Chorus and Orchestra of the Polish National Opera is one of few occasions to listen to the master.
