Finnegan Downie Dear will end 2018 by making yet another debut, this time at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, conducting Humperdinck’s fairy tale opera, Hänsel und Gretel.
Finnegan began the 2018/19 season with his Asia debut, conducting a new production of Hänsel und Gretel at Korea National Opera. He then returned to the UK and led his Shadwell Ensemble in the London premiere of a new arrangement of Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 for chamber orchestra.
In the New Year, he will meet and conduct concerts with the BBC Concert Orchestra and RTÉ Symphony Orchestra for the first time and he will return to Polish National Opera for their revival of Die tote Stadt.
