TENOR

 'Kamil Bien introduced two lyrical arias, as Ottavio 'Il mio tesoro' as well

as Titus 'Del piu sublime Soglio'. He sang them in his soft and delicious voice'.

In 2021 Kamil sang the role of Satyavan in Northern Opera Group's production of Savitri, Kamil also returned to The Grange Festival to perform the roles of Edmondo, Lampionaio and Maestro di Ballo in Manon Lescaut.  Previously, he performed the role of Don Curzio in The Grange Festival's production of Le Nozze di Figaro (2019), Alemric in Iolanta during the Les Azuriales Festival (2019).

 Credit too must be given to Kamil Bien playing several roles, whose bright tenor opened the opera and whose sardonic expressions as Edmondo were particularly entertaining.

Kamil Bien’s Satyavan was fresh and chirpy, making a good foil for Julian Close’s commanding Death

We heard too little of Polish tenor Kamil Bien’s beautiful voice in the smaller role of Satyavan

Richard Wilcocks, Bachtrack, August 2021

Kamil Bien... popped up in three roles, making each one a character. There was something of the pander about both Edmondo (in Act One) and the Dancing Master (in Act Two) who was clearly more than that.

Robert Hugill, Opera Today, June 2021

 Kamil Bien was her freshly-voiced husband – he also was able to remain prostrate and immobile during her prolonged encounter with Death

Anthony Ogus, August 2021

Kamil Bien impressed with a mature tenor timbre in his roles as Interpreter (in this case a medic) and Messenger in the wartime hospital scenes
