Janusz Monarcha was born in Poland, studied at the University of Music in Wrocław and won several singing competitions. He was first engaged at the Wrocław Opera House. In 1986 he joined the Vienna Chamber Opera, and a year later became an ensemble member of the Volksoper. Guest appearances have led him to France, Monte Carlo, Hungary, the Czech Republic and the United States. Since 1991 he has been an ensemble member of the Vienna State Opera, with rôles including Fasolt (Rheingold), Rocco (Fidelio), Daland (Der fliegender Hollander), Pistola (Falstaff), Boris (Boris Godunov), Colline (La boheme), Mefisto (Faust), and Hobson (Peter Grimes). He has often appeared with the Warsaw Philharmonic, and in 2010 took part in a concert performance of Norma under the baton of Antoni Wit. For Naxos he has collaborated in recordings of operas including Le nozze di Figaro (8.660102–04) and Don Giovanni (8.660080–82).
