Conductor Gianandrea Noseda has extended his contract as the General Music Director of the Zürich Opera House through 2027-28.
He assumed the position back in 2021-22.
“Since the beginning of my tenure as General Music Director in 2021 my impression of the Zurich Opera House as one of the world’s greatest opera houses has only grown. The artists of the Zurich Opera House – from the Philharmonia Zurich to the chorus, the singers to the ballet dancers, and many others – form one of the elite opera houses in the world. I love the way this opera house functions: the seriousness and quality with which work is performed, as well as its openness and productivity,” Noseda said in an official press statement issued by the company. “I am very excited about extending my relationship with the Zurich Opera House for another three seasons in 2025 in partnership with Matthias Schulz. It will give us all an opportunity to deepen and expand what has already been achieved. I am also looking forward to continuing to lead the incredibly versatile Philharmonia Zurich both in the orchestra pit and on the concert stage.”
The conductor is set to lead a production of “Tosca” in Zürich this December. He will also lead performances with the National Symphony Orchestra in the coming weeks.
