The Music Director is at the heart of ENO’s work, driving the company musically and playing a vital role in many areas of the Company’s work, from repertoire to casting.
ENO has an unrivalled tradition of championing some of the foremost British conductors of the last 50 years. Previous Music Directors have included Reginald Goodall, Sir Charles Groves, Mark Elder and Paul Daniel. The current incumbent, Edward Gardner, is one of the most talented and exciting conductors of his generation.
Assuming the position in 2007, Edward has lost no time in dramatically raising the musical standards of the Company. He conducts three productions each season and particularly outstanding performances include Britten’s Death in Venice and Peter Grimes, Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman and Berg’s Wozzeck. He won the 2009 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera for his ENO productions of 2008.
Established in 2008, The Music Director’s Circle is a small, enlightened group of supporters who invest in this pivotal role and enjoy unrivalled access to the Music Director and his work.
