GIANLUCA MARCIANO AND THE BOURNEMOUTH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA WERE ALL A VITAL PART OF THE EVENING'S SUCCESS: THEY MASTERED ENERGY AND BRIGHTNESS WHEN NEEDED, BUT ALSO ENSURED THAT THE DELICACY AND SHEER GOOD TASTE OF TCHAIKOVSKY'S ORCHESTRAL, WRITING WAS ALWAYS BEFORE US.
An Italian conductor, Gianluca Marcianò, has been increasingly in demand since his opera debut with Croatian National Opera in 2007. Praised in The Sunday Times for his “unfailingly theatrical and idiomatic conducting”, Marcianò works with opera houses in Oviedo, Minsk, Ljubljana and Yerevan, as well as in the UK (English National Opera, Grange Park Opera, Scottish Opera, Opera North and Longborough Opera Festival).
He has conducted many operas all over the world, among others: La Traviata, Tosca, Un Ballo in Maschera, Rigoletto, Die Zauberflöte, La Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi fan Tutte, Alzira, Nabucco, Don Carlo, Eugene Ogienin, Samson et Dalila and Madama Butterfly.
“Behind the boyish charm, he is clearly a little wild at heard. His career has been entirely and delightfully unconventional to date, and his music-making is infused with a wide-eyed sense of discovery”
Marcianò is the Artistic Director of the Al Bustan Festival in Beirut. He is also the founder and the Artistic Director of the Festival Suoni dal Golfo in Lerici and the Principal Guest Conductor of the National Academic Bolshoi Theatre of Belarus.
From 2011 to 2014 he held the position of Musical Director/Principal Conductor of the Tbilisi State Opera, where his opera performances included La Forza del Destino, Cavalleria Rusticana, Nabucco, Attila, Il Trovatore, Mitridate, Re di Ponto and Aida. During his time in Zagreb as the main conductor, he conducted Nabucco, La Traviata, Turandot, Carmen, La Cenerentola and Il Barbiere di Siviglia. In 2011 he conducted La Traviata at the Prague State Opera. From 2017 till 2019 Gianluca Marcianò was the Principal Conductor of Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad.
As an orchestral conductor, Marcianò has worked with many great singers and instrumentalists, such as: Elina Garanča, Sumi Jo, Simon Keenlyside, Sondra Radvanovsky, Olga Peretyatko, Danielle De Niese, Gautier Capuçon, Renaud Capuçon, Arabella Steinbacher, Anna Tifu, Francesca Dego, Alexandra Soumm, Steven Isserlis, Boris Andrianov, Maria João Pires, David Geringas, Khatia Buniatshvili, Sergei Krylov, Nina Kotova, Giovanni Sollima, Sergei Nakariakov, Denis Kozhukin and Alexander Buzlov.
