He is a regular guest of many of the world’s greatest orchestras, including the Philharmonia Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. Recent highlights have included two major series specially devised for the Philharmonia Orchestra — titled Bohemian Legends and The Mighty Five — and debuts with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Vienna Symphony, DSO Berlin, and Russian National Orchestra. On the operatic stage he has been a regular guest with the Glyndebourne Festival since his debut in 2008, when he conducted Bizet’s Carmen, Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and Puccini’s La bohème, and serving as music director of Glyndebourne On Tour from 2010 to 2012. He has also led productions for Opéra National de Paris (Dvořák’s Rusalka), Finnish National Opera (Janáček’s Jenůfa), Royal Danish Theatre (Musorgsky’s Boris Godunov), and Prague National Theatre (Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen and Rusalka).

The 2015–16 season includes Mr. Hrůša’s debuts with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala, and at the Vienna Staatsoper (in a new production of Janáček’s The Makropulos Case directed by Peter Stein) and Frankfurt Opera (Puccini’s Il trittico). He also returns to Glyndebourne Festival in 2016 to lead The Cunning Little Vixen.

As a recording artist, he has released six discs for Supraphon, including a live recording of Smetana’s Má vlast from the Prague Spring Festival. Other recordings include the Tchaikovsky and Bruch Violin Concertos with Nicola Benedetti and the Czech Philharmonic (on Universal); live recordings of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, Richard Strauss’s Eine Alpensinfonie, and Suk’s Asrael Symphony with the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra for Octavia Records; and, as the first in a three-disc series for Pentatone with PKF–Prague Philharmonia, the Dvořák and Lalo Cello Concertos with Johannes Moser. In the coming seasons he will also embark on a new partnership with Bamberg Symphony (Tudor).
