Jordan de Souza is a fast-rising conductor with an impressive international career. He was recently named one of CBC’s Top 30 Classical Musicians Under 30, and Kapellmeister of the Komische Oper Berlin starting in 2017. During the 2016-17 season, de Souza will lead thirteen performances of a new production of Carmen with the Vienna Symphony at the Bregenz Festival (Austria), and conduct Il barbiere di Siviglia, Don Giovanni, Eugene Onegin, and symphonic programs at the Komische Oper Berlin. Closer to home in Canada, he takes the podium for Don Giovanni with l’Opéra de Montréal and l’Orchestre Métropolitain, and appears in a return engagement with Symphony Nova Scotia.
Coming up in May 2017, de Souza will give the world premiere of Tapestry Opera’s Oksana G.
