Alejo Pérez returns to Teatro dell’Opera di Roma this month to conduct a new production of Alban Berg’s Lulu, directed by renowned visual artist William Kentridge and staged to great acclaim in Amsterdam, New York and London. The conductor has previously led productions of La Cenerentola and Shostakovich’s The Nose in Rome.
The tragic figure of Lulu, created by the composer after texts by Frank Wedekind, will be performed in Rome by Swedish soprano Agneta Eichenholz as well as Icelandic singer Dísella Lárusdóttir. Following his performances in Rome, Alejo Pérez will return to his hometown in July to lead Der Rosenkavalier at the Teatro Colón, where he was celebrated for his interpretation of Parsifal in 2015.
