Bringing Mariusz back

Good news, barihunk lovers! According to a press release from the Met, Mariusz Kwiecien will return to the stage for the title role of Don Giovanni on October 25, in time for the HD telecast October 29 as well as remaining scheduled performances through November 11.


  • Camille says:

    “The Polish barihunk recently underwent surgery for a herniated desk and rumors were flying that he would not only cancel the rest of his run of Giovanni at the Met…”

    So Mariusz has got a problem with his furniture, according to Barihunks. All makes sense now--how he’ll be able to return so soon in palcoscena!
