He makes his Carnegie Hall debut conducting the MET Orchestra in February 2023.

Despite the pandemic, Daniele Rustioni was able to develop a significant relationship with the Ulster Orchestra, including a tour of the EU tour in May 2022 and a celebrated performance at the BBC PROMS in August 2022.

Review: MOULIN ROUGE at Musical Dome Köln Photo
„Moulin Rouge“ im Musical Dome in Köln hat mich umgehauen. Baz Luhrmanns Film aus dem Jahr 2001 ist einer meiner absoluten Lieblingsfilme und die Bühnenfassung hat mich nicht enttäuscht. Jeder Cent des teuren Spektakels ist auf der Bühne zu sehen. Die Show ist ein absolutes Muss und ich empfehle es jedem, der eine Vorliebe für Theater und Musicals hat.
