Nathalie Stutzmann named “Best Conductor of the Year” at Oper Awards

Nathalie Stutzmann has won the prestigious “Best Conductor of the Year” Oper Award last night for her Bayreuth debut with Wagner’s Tannhäuser.

Oper stated: “Anyone who grows up as the child of opera singers, plays the piano, cello and bassoon and then also has an extraordinary instrument in their voice, has supposedly already had enough of God’s gifts. But anyone who hears so many voices singing within them and loves music in all its forms is also destined to conduct. For her outstanding debut on the podium of the Festival Orchestra with Richard Wagner’s energetic Tannhäuser at the Bayreuth Festival 2023, there’s the OPER!”
