The 2019–20 season will see him return to the Berlin Philharmonic and make debuts with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Zurich Opera (in a new production of Janáček’s The Makropulos Case), and Dutch National Opera (in a new production of Dvořák’s Rusalka with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra for the Holland Festival). In summer 2020 he will return to the Glyndebourne Festival to conduct Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress.

As an opera conductor, he has been a regular guest with the Glyndebourne Festival — conducting Barber’s Vanessa, Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen, Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Bizet’s Carmen, Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and Puccini’s La bohème — and served as music director of Glyndebourne On Tour for three years. He has also led productions for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden (Carmen), Vienna Staatsoper (a new production of The Makropulos Case), Opéra national de Paris (Rusalka and Lehár’s The Merry Widow), Frankfurt Opera (Puccini’s Il trittico), and Zurich Opera (The Makropulos Case), among others.

Mr. Hrůša’s most recent releases are the first two instalments of a new cycle of Dvořák and Brahms symphonies and Smetana’s Má vlast with Bamberg Symphony (on the Tudor label). Other releases have included the Concertos for Orchestra by Bartók and Kodály with RSB Berlin (Pentatone). He has also recorded Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, R. Strauss’s An Alpine Symphony, and Suk’s Asrael Symphony with Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra (Octavia Records); the Tchaikovsky and Bruch Violin Concertos with Nicola Benedetti and the Czech Philharmonic (Universal); and nine discs (with Pentatone and Supraphon) of Czech repertoire with PKF-Prague Philharmonia, where he was music director from 2009 until 2015.
