Piotr Beczała is one of the today’s most sought-after tenors and a regular guest of the world's leading opera houses, such as New York's Metropolitan Opera, Milan's La Scala, Vienna State Opera, San Francisco Opera, Opéra Bastille in Paris, Bavarian State Opera in Munich and many others.
His signature roles include the Prince in Dvořák's Rusalka, which he sang on many stages including the Metropolitan Opera, the Salzburg Festival, the Vienna State Opera, as well as National Theatre in Prague (18th and 20th February 2017). Prague first met the famous Pole in 2014 at the invitation of the Nachtigall Artists Agency. In the same year, he was awarded the ECHO Klassik Award as the Singer of the Year; he was also awarded as the Best Singer in the prestigious International Opera Awards poll in 2018.
Last year, the Armenian soprano Juliana Grigoryan triumphantly won two important world competitions: Plácido Domingo’s Operalia (October 2022) and the Stanislav Moniuszko Competition in Warsaw (June 2022), and her career began to rise steeply. As early as June 2023, she made her debut as a Water Nymph in the very first production of Dvořák's Rusalka in Milan's La Scala, and in the 2023/2024 season she will make her debut at New York Metropolitan Opera in the role of Liù in the legendary Franco Zeffirelli’s production of Turandot.
In June 2023, she completely enchanted Prague's Dvořák Hall "with her brilliantly mastered bel canto technique, brilliant coloraturas... The professionalism with which she develops her talents and applies her youthful charm can be a role model for many…" (Opera Plus)
