What a pleasure! After a fantastic time at the Hungarian State Opera, here we are, back at the Opéra National de Paris. A house where I worked as assistant, as second chorus master, a house where I replaced two sooo important conductors for me Maestro Fabio Luisi and Maestro Jesus Lopez-Cobos. A house where I started, where I learned so much from all the instrumentalists of the orchestra, from all the soloists, from all the pianists and chorus members.
A pleasure to be back in the pit of the Palais Garnier, to conduct four Gala de Danse, with L’Ecole de Danse de L’opéra de Paris. Fantastic dancers, beautiful program, done for the birthday of the Opera House: Rameau D’Ores et Déjà, Conservatoire, et André Messager Les deux Pigeons. Thanks to Mlle Elisabeth Platel and to Maestro Philippe Jordan for this confidence! And, a fantastic privilège to even record Messager Les deux pigeons with such an exceptional orchestra!
See you in November dear friends, still in Garnier, with Le Parc !
