It would be wonderful to attend the performance twice and the second time around only look with one’s ears. The music under the Argentine conductor Alejo Pérez [...] was performed with intensity of the highest order. Jürgen Kesting, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
As a conductor, Alejo Pérez possesses an inherent stylistic awareness and the ability to bring every detail of the most complex score to life. This has consistently secured him a firm place on the international opera and concert scene.
Since the beginning of the 2019/20 season he has been forming the sonic identity of the Flemish Opera as its new Music Director – a theatre which has received much international recognition in recent years. Since his debut there in 2018 he made strong appearances in new productions of Pelléas et Mélisande (directed by Abramovich, Cherkaoui), Lohengrin (David Alden), Don Carlos (Johan Simons), and Schreker’s Schmied von Gent (Ersan Mondtag). In 2021 he will conduct concert performances of Ariadne auf Naxos, Così fan tutte (Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker), and a series of concerts at the Flemish Opera.
