Italian conductor Gianluca Marcianò has been increasingly in demand since his operatic debut with Croatian National Opera in 2007. Praised in the Sunday Times for his “unfailingly theatrical and idiomatic conducting”, Marcianò has strong ties with the opera houses in Oviedo, Minsk, Tbilisi and Yerevan, and within the UK, English National Opera, Grange Park Opera, Longborough Opera and the English Chamber Orchestra.
Marcianò is currently Principal Conductor of the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad, Serbia. He is also Artistic Director of the Al Bustan Festival in Beirut, where he has conducted works including Cherubini's Médée, Rossini's Stabat Mater and Berlioz' La Mort de Cléopâtre. He is also founder and Artistic Director of the Festival Suoni dal Golfo in Lerici and Principal Guest Conductor of the National Academic Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus.
Other recent engagements include Turandot and Nabucco for Ópera de Oviedo; La traviata, Madama Butterfly and La bohème for the Lithuanian National Opera; Tosca for Grange Park Opera; Nabucco for the Chelsea Opera Group; Elgar’s Symphony No. 1 in Tokyo; Pagliacci in Moscow and Ernani and La traviata for Lithuanian National Opera.
