A renowned opera conductor, in December 2016 Susanna Mälkki made her debut with The Metropolitan Opera conducting its premiere of Kaija Saariaho’s L’Amour de loin in a new production by Robert Lepage. She will return to Opéra National de Paris in the spring of 2017 for the World Premiere of Luca Francesconi’s new opera Trompe-la-mort, having previously conducted the World Premiere of a ballet by Bruno Mantovani there as well as Janáček’s The Makropolous Case in 2013. Previous opera highlights include Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier and Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro with the Finnish National, her debut at Hamburg Staatsoper conducting a revival of Janáček’s Jenůfa, and in 2011 she became the first woman to conduct a production at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala,  where she returned in 2014.
