Nathalie

Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Principal Guest Conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra

Chief Conductor of the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra

Conductor and contralto, Nathalie Stutzmann is considered one of the most outstanding musical personalities of our time. Charismatic musicianship, combined with unique rigour, energy and fantasy, characterise her style.

Nathalie Stutzmann is the new Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra from the 22/23 season and only the second woman in history to lead a major American orchestra. She is also the Principal Guest Conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra since 2021 and Chief Conductor of the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra in Norway since 2018.

Highlights as guest conductor in the next seasons include debut performances with the Munich, New York and Helsinki Philharmonics. She will also return to the London Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre de Paris.

Having also established a strong reputation as an opera conductor, Nathalie will begin the 22/23 season with a new production of Tchaikovsky’s Pikovaya Dama in Brussels’ La Monnaie and will make her debut at the Metropolitan Opera this season with two productions of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and Don Giovanni.
