Principal Conductor of Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile Konstantin Chudovsky is a young multiple award-winning Russian opera, ballet and symphony conductor. In 2011 the Financial Times Magazine mentioned him among 25 Russians to watch: "Young conductor Konstantin Chudovsky is one of the country's movers and shakers." The magazine El Mercurio praised Chudovsky for his extraordinary conducting abilities in opera where "without score, he elaborated every vocal and instrumental detail, was subtle even in the most exuberant sound expression, distinguished musical frames and kept an absolute correlation with the regie. Just remarkable." Speaking six languages fluently (Russian, English, German, Italian, Spanish, and French) has enabled him to master a wide operatic repertoire, and his extraordinary musical memory allows him to conduct music by heart without consulting a full score.
Recent highlights include the opening of the Youth Programme of the Theater an der Wien with a production of Rossini's La cambiale di matrimonio with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra at the Vienna Kammeroper, followed by a successful production of the ballet La Cenerentola. In 2014 Chudovsky was conducting Il Trovatore in Limoges and Cinderella at the Opera de Lyon in Reims. In March 2016 he debuted with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra (E. Svetlanov Orchestra) and was re-invited by the Ekaterinburg State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre to lead the productions of Verdi's Rigoletto and Puccini's Madame Butterfly. In the season 2017/2018 he will follow a re-invitation of the Svetlanov Orchestra to conduct all Tchaikovsky symphonies in Kuweit, and of the Opera de Lyon to conduct the Cinderella Ballet during a tour of Oman.
"I believe a concert is successful, if afterwards, people feel a strong desire to call their parents and friends, to spend more time with their families, to give a smile to somebody... If the world becomes a little bit better, it means that I have conducted well."
