Mariusz Treliński’s production of Tristan und Isolde receives its Beijing premiere at the National Centre for the Performing Arts on 23 August 2017. The production opened the 2016/17 season at the Metropolitan Opera and in Europe premiered at the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus and Polish National Opera.


Treliński, currently the artistic director of the Polish National Opera, is an alumnus of the famous Łódź Film School and began his directing career with his television debut, Zad Wielkiego Wieloryba. He presented his cinematic feature debut, Farewell to Autumn, at the Venice Film Festival in 1990. His opera debut came in 1996 when the Warsaw Autumn Festival commissioned him to direct Elżbieta Sikora’s one-act Heartsnatcher based on the prose of Boris Vian, subsequently staged at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. In 1999 he premiered his famous production of Puccini Madame Butterfly at the Polish National Opera. This production saw the beginning of a long standing collaboration with stage designer Boris Kudlička and marked the start of Treliński’s international career.


Last season Treliński made his Metropolitan Opera debut with the widely acclaimed double bill of Iolanta and Bluebeard’s Castle starring Anna Netrebko and Nadja Michael, for which he was sub-sequently nominated for an International Opera Award in the Best Director category. He returned to the Met to open the 2016/17 season with Tristan und Isolde, starring Nina Stemme and Stuart Skelton. Future projects include productions of The Fiery Angel, Halka, Mazeppa and Boris Godunov.


Performances of Tristan und Isolde run until 29 August.
