Marcin has been linked to the operatic world for more than 40 years and it has been almost 30 years since he started working in this field. 

Introduced at a very early age to the theatre in Łódź by his mother, who worked in the scenery department, Marcin made his first stage appearance there aged sixteen. He holds a degree in Film and Audiovisual Arts from the Institute of Theory of Literature, Theatre, and Audio-Visual Arts at the University of  Łódź and a degree in Set Design from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, Italy. 

After having been awarded John Small Bursary by the Wexford Festival Opera to help further his career, Marcin has directed Menotti's “The Old Maid and the Thief” in Wexford in 2008.

In 2006 he was appointed Manager of the Arturo Toscanini Orchestra in Parma, Italy. He held the post up until 2011 when he decided to concentrate on fulfilling his career aspirations and his true passion for opera.

He has worked as Assistant Director on numerous opera, drama and film productions with directors such as Mariusz Treliński, Graham Vick, Robert Wilson, Hugo de Ana, Peter Stein, Mario Martone, Damiano Michieletto, Jürgen Flimm, Romeo Castellucci. Assisting Andrea Breth for the 2018 production “Medée” resulted in a long-term collaboration with the director for further productions.

Since the 2016/17 season he has been staff producer at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden.
