Nathalie

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

“Best Conductor of the Year” at the 2024 Oper! Awards, proclaimed “probably the most important conductor of our time” by Die Süddeutsche Zeitung, Nathalie made big news in the opera pit in 2023 with her spectacular debuts in Wagner’s Tannhäuser at the Bayreuth Festival. BR Klassik observed having “never experienced such a standing ovation at a pit debut in Bayreuth”, while Oper Magazin described Nathalie as a true possessor of “the Bayreuth gene”, Abendzeitung München “a revelation” and Die Süddeutsche Zeitung “a wonder”. She also made “a splashy debut” and “the coup of the year” for The New York Times with her unanimously acclaimed double debuts at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

During the 2023/24 season, she will lead the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in twelve different programs featuring composers from her favorite repertoire including Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Wagner, Schumann, Mahler, Strauss, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Verdi and Ravel. Highlights include a “Bruckner festival” to celebrate the composer’s 200th anniversary, collaborations with soloists such as Renée Fleming, Maria João Pires and Daniil Trifonov, and recording projects for Warner/Erato are planned. Nathalie and the ASO will also embark on their first tour in California.
