  • Daniela Candillari


    Serbian-born conductor Daniela Candillari continues to garner praise for her dynamic and compelling performances at opera houses and concert stages throughout North America and Europe. She enters her second season as both principal conductor at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis and principal opera conductor at Music Academy of the West. Candillari’s 2022–23 season features her conducting the New York Philharmonic and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, American Composers Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, Orchestre métropolitain Montreal, and Toledo Symphony. She also leads the world premiere of Arkhipov by Peter Knell and Stephanie Fleischmann at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, a concert version of Delibes’s Lakmé at Deutsche Oper Berlin; Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel at New Orleans Opera; Puccini’s Tosca at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis and Arizona Opera; and a Gala concert version of Verdi’s Aida at Tulsa Opera. During the 2021–22 season, Candillari made her Metropolitan Opera debut conducting Matthew Aucoin’s Eurydice. She also led a new production of Jeanine Tesori’s Blue with Detroit Opera, and workshopped Tesori’s Grounded with Washington National Opera and The Met. She led Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones at Lyric Opera of Chicago; Bizet’s Carmen at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis; the North American premiere of Caroline Shaw, Andrew Yee, and Asma Maroof’s Moby Dick; or The Whale at The Shed, in which she led Members of the New York Philharmonic, and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at Music Academy of the West. She led the made-for-film world premiere of Clint Borzoni’s The Copper Queen with Arizona Opera, released in 2021, plus the 2022 film of Ana Sokolović’s Svadba with Boston Lyric Opera. As a composer, Candillari has been commissioned by The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New York Philharmonic (for a newly recorded chamber music performance for the NYPhil+ streaming service), and New York City Ballet Orchestra, as well as by established instrumentalists from the Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, and Pittsburgh symphony orchestras. Candillari, who grew up in Serbia and Slovenia, holds a doctorate in musicology from the Universität für Musik in Vienna, a master’s in jazz studies from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and master’s and bachelor’s degrees in piano performance from the Universität für Musik in Graz. A Fulbright Scholarship recipient, she was awarded a TED Fellowship.
