Yannick Nézet-Séguin

Yannick Nézet-SéguinHans van der Woerd

By the time the Canadian conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin made his European debut in 2004, he had already founded his own professional orchestra and vocal ensemble, La Chapelle de Montréal, going on to conduct all the major ensembles in Canada.

In 2018, he completed his engagement with the Rotterdam Philharmonic for whom he'll stay Honorary Conductor, and became Music Director of the Metropolitan Opera, New York, remaining in post with The Philadelphia Orchestra, until at least summer 2026. In 2019, he was appointed as Chief Conductor for life of the Orchestre Métroplitain of Montreal.

Yannick has worked with many leading European ensembles and enjoys close collaborations with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Wiener Philharmoniker, Bayerischer Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester and Chamber Orchestra of Europe; between 2008 and 2014 he was also Principal Guest Conductor of London Philharmonic Orchestra. He has appeared three times at the BBC Proms and at many European festivals, among them Edinburgh, Lucerne, Salzburg and Grafenegg (Vienna). With the Philadelphia Orchestra, he goes regulaly to Carnegie Hall. He also conducts master classes, notably at two of the most renowned institutions, the Curtis Institute of Philadelphia and the Julliard School of New York.

Yannick is equally comfortable in the pit and on the concert podium. After doing his first opera conducting experiences for the Opéra de Montréal from 2000 to 2004, in L'Incoronazione di Poppea, Le Barbier de Séville, Cosi fan tutte, Pelléas et Mélisande and L'Elisir d'amore, he returned once in a while for Wozzeck, Madame Butterfly, Salomé and Elektra. In the 2009/10 season, he made his Metropolitan Opera debut with their new production of Carmen; since then, he has returned each season to conduct Don Carlo, Faust, La Traviata, Rusalka, Otello, Der fliegende Hollander, Parsifal and Elektra before he was named Music Director beginning with the season 2018-2019.
