Nicholas Carter conducts his inaugural performance as Chief Conductor of the Stadttheater Klagenfurt this week, with Dvorak’s Rusalka. Nicholas will lead three new productions at the Opera per season and appear regularly in the orchestra’s concert series. In his first season, he conducts Rusalka, La Clemenza di Tito and Pelléas et Mélisande, and concert programmes include Haydn’s Die Schöpfung and Mahler Symphony No. 1.
On his new position, Nicholas commented, ‘It’s a huge thrill to take up this position in Klagenfurt; a truly magical part of the world. To work with a dedicated team and group of musicians on such great productions is as rewarding as it gets.’
This season sees Nicholas conduct performances with the Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin (concert debut, including Brett Dean’s Pastoral Symphony and Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony) and returns to BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Deutsche Oper Berlin (Rigoletto) and Deutsche Oper am Rhein (Don Carlo). The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra Principal Conductor also returns to Adelaide to conduct Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and Beethoven Symphony No. 9 and a commercial recording of the complete Beethoven piano concertos with Jayson Gillham. He also returns to the orchestra of the Australian National Academy of Music Melbourne and to the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
