She con­tin­ued her stud­ies in Milan under Vit­to­rio Ter­ra­no­va, and in Lon­don under Joy Mam­men. She received the “Pro­mo­tion of Tal­ent” schol­ar­ship, which was award­ed to her by the Ewa Czesze­jko-Sochac­ka Foun­da­tion.

She had her debut on stage of the Great The­atre – Nation­al Opera in the per­for­mance of Stanisław Moniuszko’s Song­book for Home Use direct­ed by Maria Foł­tyn. Since then she has widened her reper­toire with mez­zo-sopra­no parts from such operas as: Eugene One­gin by Pyotr Tchaikovsky (Olga), Hänsel und Gre­tel by Engel­bert Hum­per­dinck (Hänsel), The Haunt­ed Manor by S. Moniuszko (Jad­wiga), The Mar­riage of Figaro by Wolf­gang Amadeus Mozart (Cherub), Janek by Władysław Żeleńs­ki (Maryn­ka), La ron­dine (Suzy) and Madame But­ter­fly by Gia­como Puc­ci­ni (Kate) and The Jour­ney to Reims (Mad­da­lena) by Gio­ac­chino Ros­si­ni. With the ensem­ble of the Nation­al Opera she per­formed guest appear­ances in Cyprus, Japan and Spain. Among her recent suc­cess­es on stage in War­saw are pre­miere per­for­mances in: The Mag­ic Flute by W.A. Mozart (Lady II) and the vaude­ville Super­sti­tion, or Cra­cowians and High­landers by Karol Kur­piń­ski (Zosia), and also in the pre­miere of The Mag­ic Dore­mik by Mar­ta Pta­szyń­ska (title part) and  Lucia di Lam­mer­moor by Gae­tano Doni­zet­ti (Ali­sa). Apart from that she has a rich ora­to­rio and can­ta­ta, as well as song reper­toire, which she suc­cess­ful­ly per­forms on phil­har­mon­ic stages in Poland and abroad. She has been applaud­ed by the audi­ences of con­cert halls on Ams­ter­dam, Brus­sels, Cologne, Lux­em­burg, Paris, Valen­cia, New York, Toron­to and Tokyo. An impor­tant event in the singer’s career was when she par­tic­i­pat­ed in the per­for­mance of W.A. Mozart’s Requiem dur­ing a cer­e­mo­ni­al con­cert for the Bel­gian Queen Fabi­o­la on the 5th  death anniver­sary of King Bau­douin. She also took part in a con­cert in mem­o­ry of Giuseppe Sinop­o­li (Pisa) and a fes­tive gala The Stars for Europe under the baton of José Cura, an Argen­tin­ian tenor and con­duc­tor.
