ABOUT

Hailed by the New York Times as part of “the new generation leading Berlin’s classical music scene”, Canadian conductor Jordan de Souza earned this distinction while serving as First Kapellmeister of the Komische Oper Berlin from 2017-2020. During this term, he collaborated with renowned director Barrie Kosky on four critically acclaimed new productions: Pelléas et Mélisande, La bohème, Weinberger’s Frühlingsstürme, and Candide. Debuts in the 20-21 season include the Bayerische Staatsoper (Munich), the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and Der Rosenkavalier at Garsington Opera with the Philharmonia Orchestra. Symphonic concerts include a return to the Orchestre symphonique et lyrique de Nancy (France), a debut with the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec in a programme of Tchaikovsky and Zemlinsky, and recordings with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
