XIII New Year's Concert

  Opera, Operetta, Musical

  1.01.2018  18:00

  Concert Hall of the National Philharmonic in Warsaw

Mazovian Music Theater named after Jan Kiepura in Warsaw has traditionally welcomed the New Year in concert at the National Philharmonic in Warsaw.  The star of the 13th New Year's Concerto, where you will hear the most famous opera arias, operetta and musical hits will be world famous opera singer Jose Cura.

Along with the Argentine tenor, the stage will feature prominent soloists: Aleksandra Kubas-Kruk (soprano), Iryna Zhytynska (mezzosopran) and Wojciech Gierlach (bass).

The Four Artists will be accompanied by a symphony orchestra conducted by Maestro Mario De Rose.

 New Year's concerts are the most recognizable and popular events organized by the Mazovian Music Theater named Jan Kiepura in Warsaw.  At the same time they are the only such prestigious concert in Warsaw, referring to the famous Viennese New Year's concerts.

Last year's 12th New Year's Concert was very popular with listeners and spectators.  When it was over, we received a lot of warm words from you.  Mazovian Music Theater and New Year's Concert as the project is still developing.  This year we have invited a world-class star to Warsaw!

We believe that by launching the New Year 2018 together with us and the outstanding soloists "thirteen" will be for you and for our Theater a good fortune for another twelve months of joint artistic experiences.


After finishing his studies at the Faculty of Composition and Conducting in his hometown of Rosario, José Cura moved to Buenos Aires in 1984 to improve his skills.  To explore the secrets of stage performance, from 1984 to 1998 he worked in one of the choir's choirs at Teatro Colón, where his voice developed into his distinctive bold and bright tenor with shades of dark baritone that led him to international fame.

In 1999, José Cura resumed his conducting career with the best orchestras such as the London Philharmonic, the London Symphony, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Sinfonia Varsovia, the Toscanini Orchestra and the Hungarian Philharmonic with operas and symphonies, thus enticing the audience by appearing on both the podium and the stage.

In 2007 the premiere of La Commedia è finita took place: the creative imagination of Pagliacci combined with dance and mime, written and directed by José Cura.  This was the beginning of his career as a director and screenwriter.  In 2010 he arranged, directed and starred in Saint-Saëns Samson et Dalila in the Badisches Staatstheater, creating an innovative, modern approach to classics; the production is available on DVD.  In 2012, unanimous applause from both the public and the critics for his La Rondine productions at Opéra de Nancy and Cavalleria Rusticana and the Pagliacci at Opéra Royal de Wallonie, sealed his position as an outstanding director.  His production of "A Scandinavian bohème" (2015), a new version of La Bohème Puccini's production for the Royal Swedish Opera, was announced by both by the press and the public as one of the most successful production of the famous opera.  Recently, in the autumn of 2016, his production of Turandot at Opéra Royal de Wallonie, met with great acclaim.

2014 saw the return of José Cura to the work of the composer: in November, in the South Bohemian Opera (Czech Republic), he introduced his Stabat Mater, written in 1989. In Easter 2015, after returning as Don José to La Scala, the world premiere of his Magnificat, written in 1988, took place at the Teatro Massimo di Catania.

In May 2015, Maestro Cura was named "Resident Artist" at the Prague Symphony Orchestra.  As part of his collaboration with the prestigious Czech band, he will not only lead two symphonic concerts in the season, but will also exhibit several of his productions.  In March 2017, the world premiere of his oratorio Ecce Homo took place. In 2017, the world premiere of his work "Modus" accompanied the world premiere of the symphonic version of the famous Misa Criolla and Navidad Nuestra by Ariel Ramirez, prepared by José Cura at the request of the composer.

On June 6, 2015, the Argentine Senate José Cura was honored with the Domingo Faustino Sarmiento Award for achievement in the field of education and culture.
