Wexford Festival Opera - Il bravo - Luigi - November 2018

Dans ses plus rares interventions, on repère aussi Szymon Mechliński (Luigi), autre baryton magnifiquement timbré et très sonore, voire brillant dans le registre aigu, avec des notes graves plus discrètes. 

- Anaclase, Irma FolettiRead the article


Wexford Festival Opera Recital - Soloist - October 2018

I was very impressed with Mechliński’s performance as Dr Malatesta in Don Pasquale.  This recital confirmed that this young man is a major new talent and destined for great things in the world of opera. He has a rich, clear, ringing voice, he is supremely musical, he has perfect intonation and his diction is excellent. His technique is quite extraordinary for such a young performer and the singing at this recital was entirely effortless.

 

Melchiński is due to perform the role of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in the coming months and he gave us a preview of this in his performance of Onegin’s aria. This performance had everything, combining power, lyricism, gorgeous tone colours and excellent diction. 

 

This was an absolutely superb recital from start to finish. I am sure Melchiński will make a terrific Onegin and he is clearly a performer to watch.

- Seen and Heard International, Robert BeattieRead the article


Glyndebourne - Madama Butterfly - Yamadori

Simon Mechlinski is effective as Prince Yamadori. 

- Classical Source, David TrusloveRead the article

Supporting roles were well taken by Carlo Bosi (Goro), Simon Mechlinski (Prince Yamadori) and an ensemble including Jennifer Witton, Michael Mofidian, Oleg Budaratskiy.

- The Guardian, Fiona MaddocksRead the article

"and there is a string of crisp vignettes from Simon Mechlinski (Yamadori), Oleg Budaratskiy (Bonze), and others too numerous to list, as well as from the excellent Glyndebourne Chorus as a whole"

- The Arts Desk, Stephen WalshRead the article


Baltic State Opera - La Boheme - Marcello

'From the young cast the only person not fighting the accoustic was an excellent baritone - Simon Mechlinski.'

- E-TEATRRead the article


Dorset Opera - Le Comte Ory - Raimbaud

In more minor roles, Szymon Mechlinski deployed an attractively dark baritone as Raimbaud

- Dominic Lowe, BachtrackRead the article


Theater Dortmund - Eugene Onegin - Eugene Onegin, December

"With his imposing baritone Simon Mechlinski (...) reveals great potential."

- Westfällische Rundschau

Simon Mechlinski singt und spielt den Onegin sehr gekonnt

- Michael Lemken, ARS TREMONIARead the article

Einen blutjungen, erst 24-jährigen Onegin hat das Dortmunder Theater. Und Simon Mechlinski war nicht nur ein stimmlich eleganter Dandy, sondern entspricht auch optisch einem Beau und Mädchenschwarm. 

- Julia Gass, Dorstener ZeitungRead the article

Szymon Mechliński , der polnische Bariton, sang einen vitalen, kraftvollen Eugen Onegin und wusste ihn auch am Ende als einen gebrochenen Mann darzustellen. Ein glänzendes und überzeugendes Dortmunder Debüt des jungen Sängers. Bravo!
