An unusual auction was proposed by the bass-baritone Tomasz Konieczny, who performs at theaters such as the New York Metropolitan Opera and the festival theater in Bayreuth. He donated Wotan’s spear – a prop from the Leipzig opera – to the auction for the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity.
THE PARTNER OF THE 32nd FINAL OF THE GREAT ORCHESTRA OF CHRISTMAS CHARITY IS TVN WARNER BROS. DISCOVERY POLAND
The artist specializing in Wagnerian parts has played the role of Wotan in over 17 different productions. Almost every time he holds the attribute of the Germanic god, i.e. the mentioned spear. Now you can buy it at the WOŚP auction.
“It’s covered with ‘magical’ runes”
– The one from Leipzig seemed the most attractive to me, it is covered with “magic” runes – says the singer. – When I explained in Leipzig what the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity is and what the money is for, the prop masters had no problem giving me one copy – says Konieczny.
This is not the only thing he donated to the above-mentioned auction. Music lovers will probably be interested in two vouchers for the Baltic Opera Festival organized by the singer, which will take place this summer at the Forest Opera in Sopot.
