We are delighted to announce the signing of conductor Stuart Stratford.
Stratford is currently Music Director of Scottish Opera and has worked with a wide variety of opera companies and orchestras in the UK and abroad.
He has received excellent reviews for his work at Scottish Opera and beyond:
“Stratford’s leadership has restored the artistic values that have historically underscored Scottish Opera’s best work” Opera Magazine
“In the pit, Stuart Stratford drew passionate and exciting sounds from the players, allowing the colour and individuality to burst through.” Bachtrack
“The score sounds fresh-minted, intensely dramatic, properly seductive. Stuart Stratford paces and balances it immaculately. He is the most impressive of Opera North’s recent guest conductors.” Financial Times
Stuart Stratford will be managed by Simon Goldstone.
