Gianluca Capuano
Le Musiciens du Prince-Monaco
Principal Orchestra Conductor

Congratulations to Gianluca Capuano
named Principal Orchestra Conductor
of Les Musiciens du Prince in Monte Carlo

On the 1st of March 2019 the Monte Carlo Opera and Cecilia Bartoli announced the official nomination of Maestro Gianluca Capuano as principal orchestra conductor of Les Musiciens du Prince-Monaco.


This unique collaboration started In January 2017 when Cecilia Bartoli, artistic director of Les Musiciens du Prince-Monaco, invited Gianluca Capuano to conduct La Cenerentola, who had an enthusiastic reception by both audience and critics. 

In the same year he had occasion to work with the orchestra again in such different operas as Ariodante and La donna del lago at the Salzburg Festival, with Cecilia Bartoli starring in the title roles of both operas. Another facet of their work was the recording of Javier Camarena’s acclaimed album, the “Contrabandista”, produced by the Cecilia Bartoli-Music Foundation and issued by Decca.

Since then, Gianluca Capuano has led many performances with Les Musiciens du Prince-Monaco with Cecilia Bartoli both in Monte Carlo and the most renowned venues throughout Europe.

Amongst his future engagements with the Orchestra, it is worth mentioning a new production of Alcina at the Salzburg Festival, with a cast that comprises Cecilia Bartoli, Philippe Jaroussky and Sandrine Piau.


Gianluca Capuano’s future plans for the 2019/2020 season also include: Caldara’s La Morte di Abel with the Teatro alla Scala in Pavia and at the Salzburg Festival; Il Matrimonio Segreto at the Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam; Rossini’s Guillaume Tell at the Chorégies d'Orange Festival; Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno with Concerto Köln in Cologne; Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo; La Cenerentola in Zurich; the gala concert “Farinelli and Friends” at the Salzburg Festival, featuring artists such as Cecilia Bartoli, Vivica Genaux, Philippe Jaroussky, Patricia Petibon, Sandrine Piau, Ann Hallenberg, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, Julie Fuchs, Nuria Rial, Lea Desandre and Christophe Dumaux.
