It is impossible to overrate what my participation in the production of Monteverdi’s “The Coronation of Poppea” by the Opera Institute gave me. The role of Poppea – my first operatic role – was not just a fulfilled dream, a challenge and a learning experience, but first of all, it was the breakthrough marking the start of “the new” which is slowly gaining its momentum: me as an opera singer. It was Poppea that gave me the first dose of the opera drug, which has made me absolutely addicted to opera. Thank you!
Polish lyric soprano Bożena Bujnicka graduated with distinction from the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw in the vocal class of Professor Izabela Kłosińska. She was also a member of the Young Artists Programme – Opera Academy at the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera where she studied under Izabela Kłosińska, Eytan Pessen and Matthias Rexroth. Bujnicka made her professional opera debut singing the role of Amore in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice (staged by Mariusz Trelinski) at The Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera (2015). Since then she has sung several opera roles at The Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera, Opera at the Castle in Szczecin, Warsaw Chamber Opera and Wroclaw Opera House. Apart from singing, Bożena is developing her directing skills. She made three performances for children and afterwards was invited by Opera Academy to work on their new production. In March 2017 she made her debut as the stage director of About the Kingdom of Day and Night, an abridged version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, staged by the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera. The performance was a great success and resulted in numerous revivals. She took part in workshops Miniatures: creating opera & music theatre for children & young audience in La Monnaie in Brussel and LOD Music Theatre in Ghent (Belgium).
