We are honoured and excited to announce the representation of the renowned Greek conductor and General Music Director of the Erfurt Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra - MYRON MICHAILIDIS!
Conducting Germany's first open air orchestra concert on July 10 titled "Opera Gloriosa" after the first lockdown, Maestro Michailidis opened the Erfurt 20/21 season together with the Erfurt Philharmonic Orchestra with Beethoven's "Eroica" followed by a new production of Mozart's "Der Schauspieldirektor" mid-October. Michailidis' new production of "Norma" at Sweden's Göteborg Opera (originally planned for March this year) has now been rescheduled for 2022. A further adjustment to the pandemic, his premiere of Puccini’s "Manon Lescaut" production at Erfurt Opera is now scheduled for October 2, 2021.
As Artistic Director of the new Cultural and Conference Center of Crete, Greece, Myron Michailidis will also be conducting Mozart’s “Idomeneo” in a co-production with New York’s Camerata Bardi this July 23, 24 and 25. One month later, he will be conducting works by Borodin, Wagner, and Brahms/Schönberg with the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra in Thailand.
Stay tuned for further exciting news on Maestro Michailidis! Meanwhile, we invite you to enjoy the breathtaking finale of his rendition of Mahler's 2nd - the "Resurrection Symphony"!

Dear friends! Whilst we are slowly beginning to transition into what some call a “new normal”, our classical music world continues to suffer under the complete standstill and the many uncertainties around a reopening of public performances. Fortunately, there are now some efforts towards slowly performing again at several theaters and festivals. Let us all hope that this autumn can bring the full relaunch of live performances and concerts everywhere. Needless to say, this is a particularly challenging time for artists whose scheduled performances were simply wiped off the calendar, many of whom have suddenly been left without any financial income. State subsidies for artists have been discussed and announced by several governments - some more generous than others and others in turn so complicated to apply for that a number of artists have held back from even applying at all. Unfortunately, in view of the differing measures and restrictions from various governments we are all left quite powerless. While these restrictions are meant to protect our physical well-being, we must however also ensure that music and the arts - the food for our soul - remain alive as well. It is heartwarming to see the wonderfully creative efforts by so many artists in keeping music thriving through streaming! But we all know that the live, in-person audience experience as well as the artist’s own direct performance to an audience can never be replaced and that it is something that we all yearn for again. Today we would like to share this small video with you with clips from some of our dear artist friends. It is our brief, multinational message of encouragement to the many artists out there who are anxiously awaiting the end of this period so that they may again pursue what they love and do best - performing music – an essence and not a luxury! A huge THANK YOU to all who have participated in this video message!! We hope you will enjoy watching it and wish all of you to keep going and stay strong and positive! Even if it is hard at times, make the best of this difficult period. Sooner or later, this too shall pass! (well, better sooner than later…) ... See MoreSee Less

Congratulations to Soprano YING FANG on her brilliant debut at the Salzburg Festival as Ilia in Mozart's Idomeneo!
"There’s plenty to admire at the Felsenreitschule, but the evening belongs to soprano Ying Fang. ... And then there is Ying Fang as Ilia. This diminutive singer has a voice that can stop time, pure and rich and open and consummately expressive. The evening is hers." (Financial Times)
