Ramón Tébar has become one of the rising stars of the conducting world, the maestro dominating the scene at Opera Naples and Florida Grand Opera. And now he is turning back home to become the music director of his hometown orchestra.
Tébar, who hails from Valencia, Spain, is going to take over Valencia’s Symphony Orchestra. The announcement was made by the Palau de la Música. Tébar takes the place of Israeli Yaron Traub, who held the position for 12 years.
He is the music director at the Festival de Santo Domingo and the principal guest conductor of the Palau de Les Arts Reina Sofía in Valencia.
The 38-year-old maestro is slated for a massive operatic offering in 2017-18 where he will lead a production of “Un Ballo in Maschera” at the Festival Opera Coruña, “Il Trovatore” in Oviedo, “Don Carlo” in Valencia, “L’Elisir d’Amore” at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, and “Madama Butterfly” in Vienna and Naples. The “Don Carlo” will feature Plácido Domingo as Rodrigo.
He also has a concert with mezzo Tara Erraught in Ireland on July 14, 2017.
