Robin Ticciati to become Glyndebourne Festival director

1st July 2011

Acclaimed British conductor Robin Ticciati is to become music director of the Glyndebourne Opera Festival from January 2014 and will aim to bring the event to a wider audience, it has been confirmed.

The 28-year-old will take over from Vladimir Jurowski, who has held the position since 2001, and will become the seventh director in the 77-year history of the festival.

Ticciati, who is currently principal conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and is scheduled to conduct Don Giovanni at this year's Glyndebourne Festival, said he is looking forward to taking over the reins.

David Pickard, Glyndebourne general director, said Ticciati will continue the festival's 'long tradition of artistic excellence and innovation'.

'None of us will forget the excitement when, as a 21-year-old assistant conductor on Die Zauberflote in 2004, Robin Ticciati stood in the pit at Glyndebourne for the first time and conducted the overture,' he added.

The festival generally runs from May to August each year and feature six different performances, with the 2011 festival including new productions of Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg and Handel's Rinaldo.
