By Francisco Salazar

Konstantin Chudovsky has been named chief conductor at the Ekaterinburg Opera and Ballet Theatre.

The Russian conductor, who is currently the principal conductor of the Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile, recently opened the Youth Program at the Theater an der Wien with a production of Rossini’s “La Cambiale di Matrimonio” and was invited by the Opera de Lyon to conduct the Cinderella Ballet during a tour to Oman.

He was named one of the 25 Russians to watch by the Finacial Times.

This season he will continue at the Teatro Municipal de Santiago in Chile where he has already conducted productions of Bellini’s “Norma” and is slated to conduct Verdi’s “La Forza del Destino” and Gounod’s “Roméo and Juliette,” as well as symphonic concerts.
