Antonello Manacorda

An Italian with a strong affinity for the German repertoire. A “natural melodist” (Der Tagesspiegel), who excels at transferring the intricacy of his stylistically informed interpretations to the big orchestral apparatus. More, a true artist merging sheer creative force with a highly collaborative performance style. Antonello Manacorda’s versatiliy as a conductor is rooted in the richness of his musical and cultural background: born into an French-Italian family in Turin, educated in Amsterdam and a longtime Berlin resident, Manacorda was a founding member and longstanding concert master of the Claudio Abbado – initiated Mahler Chamber Ochestra before studying under legendary Finnish conductor Jorma Panula. Today Antonello Manacorda is performing at both the world’s most renowned opera houses as well as at the helm of globally renowned symphony orchestras. At the heart of his work is the Kammerakademie Potsdam – an ensemble he has shaped as its Artistic Director since 2010 and produced a series of award-winning recordings with since.

In the 2019/20 season Antonello Manacorda makes his debuts at the Metropolitan Opera New York (“Le nozze di Figaro”) and at the Opéra national de Paris (“Così fan tutte”). He has been re-invited to the Bavarian State Opera (“Alceste”) and to the Théâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels with a new production of the three Da-Ponte operas.
