Biography

Principal Conductor of Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile Konstantin Chudovsky is a young multiple award-winning Russian opera, ballet and symphony conductor. In 2011 the Financial Times Magazine mentioned him among 25 Russians to watch: “Young conductor Konstantin Chudovsky is one of the country’s movers and shakers.” The magazine El Mercurio praised Chudovsky for his extraordinary conducting abilities in opera where “without score, he elaborated every vocal and instrumental detail, was subtle even in the most exuberant sound expression, distinguished musical frames and kept an absolute correlation with the regie. Just remarkable.” Speaking six languages fluently (Russian, English, German, Italian, Spanish, and French) has enabled him to master a wide operatic repertoire, and his extraordinary musical memory allows him to conduct music by heart without consulting a full score.

Recent highlights include the opening of the Youth Programme of the Theater an der Wien with a production of Rossini’s La cambiale di matrimonio with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra at the Vienna Kammeroper, followed by a successful production of the ballet La Cenerentola. In 2014 Chudovsky was conducting Il Trovatore in Limoges and Cinderella at the Opera de Lyon in Reims. In March 2016 he will debut with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra. He is re-invited by the Ekaterinburg State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre to lead the productions of Verdi’s Rigoletto and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly.
