BIO ENG

Daniele Rustioni, 35, is one of the most compelling conductors of his generation in both the symphonic and the operatic spheres. In the 2017–18 season, Maestro Rustioni began his tenure as the Principal Conductor of the Opéra National de Lyon. He is also the Principal Conductor of the Orchestra della Toscana, a position he has held since 2014.

Maestro Rustioni inaugurated his tenure as Principal Conductor of the Opéra National de Lyon with a new and innovative staging of Britten’s War Requiem by Yoshi Oida in October 2017. In March and April 2018, he conducted productions of Verdi’s Macbeth, directed by Ivo van Hove; the five-act version of Verdi’s Don Carlos; and a concert performance of Verdi’s Attila as part of Opéra National de Lyon’s Verdi Festival. Rustioni’s second season as the company’s Principal Conductor includes a new production of Boïto’s rarity Mefistofele directed by Alex Ollé in October 2018; a concert performance of Verdi’s Nabucco with Leo Nucci in the title role; and Tchaikovsky’s seldom performed The Enchantress in a new production by Andriy Zholdak.

In April 2019, Maestro Rustioni makes his debut with the Teatro Real Madrid conducting Laurent Pelly’s new production of Verdi’s Falstaff.

Maestro Rustioni has been engaged by many of the major international opera houses including Bayerische Staatsoper, Teatro alla Scala, Teatro Regio Torino, Teatro La Fenice, Royal Opera House London, Opernhaus Zürich, Oper Stuttgart, and Opéra Bastille. In April 2017 he made his critically acclaimed debut at the Metropolitan Opera, which immediately invited him for future engagements.

Alongside his celebrated career as an opera conductor, Maestro Rustioni is in-demand worldwide as a versatile conductor of symphonic repertoire. In January 2019, Maestro Rustioni makes his American orchestral conducting debut with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Maestro Rustioni’s international orchestral engagements this season also include the Philharmonia Zürich’s season opening concert in October 2018, his return to the Ulster Orchestra in November 2018, and performances with the Scottish National Chamber Orchestra and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in December 2018. He begins 2019 conducting the Kärntner Sinfonieorchester in Klagenfurt, the Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest for his debut at the Concertgebouw, and the Hallé Orchestra in January. He continues his work with the Orchestra della Toscana with a three-city tour of Austria and Germany in March 2019, as well as concerts throughout Tuscany in December 2018 and May 2019.

Maestro Rustioni has made regular appearances in Japan since his debut with Madama Butterfly at the Nikkikai Opera in 2014 followed by symphonic concerts with the Kyushu Symphony Orchestra and the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. In May 2018, he returns to lead concerts with the Osaka Philharmonic and the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.

Daniele Rustioni already boasts an extensive and varied discography. He conducted a critically lauded recording of Bellini’s first opera Adelson e Salvini for Opera Rara with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, released in 2017. Another project of 2017 is the first recording of Wolf-Ferrari’s Violin Concerto on Deutsche Grammophon with Francesca Dego and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. A multi-year three recording project with Sony Classical dedicated to the works of the 20th-century Italian symphonic and opera composers was inaugurated with the release of works by Federico Ghedini and continued by the recent release of a recording featuring the composer Petrassi.

In 2013 Daniele Rustioni received the International Opera Award for Best Newcomer of the Year.
