Jeremie Rhorer Conducts Verdi's LA TRAVIATA In Paris

Conductor Jérémie Rhorer returns to Théâtre des Champs-Elysées today, November 28, through December 9, 2018, conducting a new production of Verdi's La traviata, directed by Deborah Warner, and using Verdi's original tuning. Rhorer will conduct Le Cercle de l'Harmonie, the period-instrument ensemble dedicated to music of the 18th and 19th centuries, which he founded in 2005.

Rhorer and Le Cercle de l'Harmonie continue their close association with the Théâtre des Champes-Elysées with this groundbreaking new production of Verdi's La traviata. This production will use Verdi's original 432 Hz tuning, allowing the audience to hear the opera as it would have been heard by the composer himself. Rhorer will lead an international ensemble of emerging and established singers, with French soprano Vannina Santoni and Albanian tenor Saimir Pirgu starring as Violetta and Alfredo and renowned French bass-baritone Laurent Naouri as Giorgio Germont. Rhorer will conduct all six performances, beginning on November 28 and continuing through December 9, 2018.

Rhorer will join Théâtre des Champs-Elysées later in the season conducting the Orchestre de chambre Paris in Richard Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos in a new production by Katie Mitchell starring Camilla Nylund as Ariadne, Kate Lindsey as The Composer, Olga Pudova as Zerbinetta, and Roberto Saccà as Bacchus.

In addition to his significant work as a symphonic and operatic conductor with a broad spectrum of repertoire, Rhorer founded the period instrument ensemble Le Cercle de l'Harmonie to recreate the sonic landscape of the Classical and Romantic eras from Gluck and Haydn to Brahms and Wagner. Rhorer and Le Cercle de l'Harmonie's recent critically acclaimed appearances include performances of Rossini's The Barber of Seville using period instruments at Musikfest Bremen in September 2018, the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2018 and the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in December 2017. Rhorer is known for his pioneering period instrument performances of Mozart's Don Giovanni, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, and La clemenza di Tito, all performed with Le Cercle de l'Harmonie at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. Live recordings of La clemenza di Tito and Die Entführung aus dem Serail were both released on CD by Alpha Classics.

Additional highlights of Rhorer's 2018/2019 season include appearances with Russian National Orchestra in Moscow and on tour in Germany, the Teatro la Fenice Orchestra, Brucknerorchester Linz, and Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Berlin, among others.
