-The Madrid-born conductor will take the podium at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées for the first time, after his Turandot in the capital of Grand Canary.

May 2018
After some months during which he has been focused on symphonic repertoire conducting concerts with the Galicia Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Navarra Symphony, the Spanish conductor José Miguel Pérez-Sierra returns to the opera genre with a trip to Grand Canary to conduct a Puccini opera which he loves: Turandot.

Previously Pérez-Sierra conducted the opera at the Metz Métropole Opéra-Théâtre in France. In Las Palmas, the capital of Grand Canary, he will conduct the Puccini opera in a Les Soirées Lyriques de Sanxay Festival production, with a cast that includes the Canary Islander Davinia Rodríguez as Liù, Rebeka Lokar as Princess Turandot and Rudy Park as Calaf, among others; performances will take place on the 12th, 14th and 16th June at the Teatro Pérez Galdós in Las Palmas.

At the end of the month, on the 25th and 26th June, the Madrid-born conductor will be making his debut in Paris, conducting a Rossini concert – Pérez-Sierra being a great authority on the composer. The concert is organised by Radio Classique and will take place in the legendary Théâtre des Champs-Élysées with the Orchestre National d’Ile-de-France, the Chœur Régional Vittoria d’Ile-de-France and various vocal soloists in a programme which alternates between overtures and arias from some of the most popular operas by the genius from Pesaro. In the summer, José Miguel Pérez-Sierra will continue with more Rossini on his return to the Wildbad Rossini Festival (Germany) with L’equivoco stravagante and at the Teatro Municipal in Santiago de Chile where he will conduct Il barbiere di Siviglia.
