"1 FILM / 1 ARTIST", with Mariusz Treliński

Cinéma Galeries (Brussels), in the framework of the event "On the theme of Manon Lescaut"

Mariusz Treliński presents Manon Lescaut from 24 January until 8 February at La Monnaie-De Munt, Royal Opera House, which kicks off 2013 with this production. As part of the events organised on the fringes of the performances, La Monnaie, in collaboration with the Polish Institute, invites you to meet the director, whose career in the arts began in the cinema. With a documentary (1983) and four feature-length fictional films (1987, 1990, 1995 and 2000), Mariusz Treliński, wearing his filmmaker’s and film lover’s hat, is offering up to a Belgian audience the Wong Kar-wai film 2046 in which a writer remembers women – passionate, cerebral or romantic – who have crossed his path and who have all left a permanent mark on his memory and fed his imagination. It is in his capacity as director of Puccini’s opera, a lyrical drama which puts front and centre the unforgettable character of Manon Lescaut, that Treliński will be talking to Camille De Rijck at the end of the screening.

Mariusz Treliński

Born in 1962 in Warsaw, Mariusz Treliński studied film at Łódź Film School (PWSFTViT). His first film, Zad wielkiego wieloryba, which was commissioned for television, came out in 1987. His next film was an instant success. Its title was Pożegnanie Jesieni (Farewell to Autumn, the second novel by Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, also known as Witkacy, which was published in Poland in 1927). The film was presented at the Venice International Film Festival and received the prize from the Chairman of the Cinematographic Committee for a first film. In Poland, he was presented with the best debut award from the Ministry of Culture, as well as the Andrzej Munk prize. Łagodna, his second film for cinema, this time adapted from a work by Dostoyevsky, won him broad national acclaim. Egoiści, released in 2000, is his latest film to date.
The director of music clips and advertisements, he has also worked for the theatre since 1993, and for the opera since 1995. Four years later, he began working with the set designer Boris Kudlička, a collaboration which continues and the fruits of which can be seen in Manon Lescaut. His production of Król Roger in 2000 earned him the Karol Szymanowski prize the same year (the opera was presented in concert in Brussels in September 2011 > see our archives). He reprised this opera, in a new version, in 2006 at Wrocław opera. Profoundly inspired by Giacomo Puccini, Treliński directed Madame Butterfly in Warsaw in 1999. The critical success was such that Plácido Domingo invited him to reprise the production in 2001 at the Washington National Opera (at the Kennedy Center), and then again in 2006: on this occasion, the orchestra was led by the maestro himself. In 2001, Treliński received the Paszport Polityki prize for his operatic productions. He also directed Verdi’s Othello (2001), Eugène Onéguine by Tchaïkovsky (2002, 2011), Mozart’s Don Giovanni (2002, 2003, 2008, 2011), Puccini’s La Bohême (2006, 2007), Boris Godounov by Moussorgski (2008, 2009), Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice (2008, 2009), Verdi’s La Traviata (2010), Turandot by Puccini (2011) and The Flying Dutchman by Wagner (2012).
From May 2005 until August 2006, he was the artistic director of the Teatr Wielki, Warsaw’s national opera, a function which he resumed in October 2008.
