APPOINTED IRISH NATIONAL OPERA STUDIO CONDUCTOR FOR 2018/19

September 2018

I am delighted to have been appointed Irish National Opera Studio conductor for the 2018/19 season. I will act as assistant conductor and chorus director on all productions this season, as well as conducting performances with the young artists, and some very exciting other things - to be announced in November! My first engagement will be as assistant conductor to Andre de Ridder for the very first staged performance in Ireland of Bartok's masterpiece, Bluebeard's Castle, for which I will conduct some of the production rehearsals, while Andre is working with the orchestra. After this I will be chorus director of the 60 strong Aida chorus for our performances in the Bord Gaid Energy Theatre, as well as conducting the offstage music. Can't wait!!
