About Jakub

One of the most beloved and celebrated opera stars of this decade, Jakub Józef Orliński has established himself as one of the world’s leading artists, triumphing on stage, in concert, and on recording. His sold-out concerts and recitals throughout Europe and America have attracted new followers to the art form. An exclusive artist on the Warner Classics/Erato label, his most recent recording accompanied by friend and pianist Michał Biel entitled Farewells earned him the prestigious Opus Klassik award for Male Singer of the Year (2023). His new album Beyond has been released in October 2023 and will tour throughout the world this season with Il Pomo d’Oro.

Upcoming highlights of Jakub’s 2024 season include European tours of his previous albums (Facce d’amore, Stabat mater and Farewells) as well as a US tour of the Beyond programme. In June, he stars as Licida in Jean-Christophe Spinosi’s acclaimed production of L’Olimpiade at the Theatre des Champs-Elysses.

Jakub is based in Warsaw, Poland

  • Semele

    Munich Opera Festival
    Jul 2023
    • Jakub Jozef Orlinski, the countertenor in the role of Athamas, is also a breakdancer, which Guth spotlights when his character desperately attempts to entertain Semele. Charismatic and handsome, Orlinski stopped the show with the applause his dance earned. But more enchanting was the purity of his sound — sublimely crystalline in “Come, Zephyrs, come” — which blended warmly with the lower end of Athamas’s altolike tessitura.
