BIO

The young Polish conductor Marta Kluczyńska was invited as the only European participant to the 2019 residence at The Linda and Mitch Hart Institute of Women Conductors at Dallas Opera. At the Polish National Opera she will again conduct a series of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker. Further highlights of the 2019/20 season will be concerts with Sinfonia Varsovia and the Sczecin Philharmonic Orchestra as well as her return to the Wrocław Opera for Rossini's La Cenerentola.

 

At the age of 24 she made her opera debut at the Polish National Opera in Warsaw where she, as a resident conductor, has since conducted numerous performances, including The Haunted Manor by Stanisław Moniuszko, The Nutcracker by Peter Tchaikovsky, Romeo and Juliet by Sergej Prokofiev, A Midsummer Night's Dream (Ballet by John Neumeier), and Don Quixote by Ludwig Minkus. Furthermore, assisting conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Marc Minkowski, Stefan Soltesz, Carlo Montanaro, Patrick Fournillier, Jacek Kaspszyk, and Gabriel Chmura has enabled her to build up a rich operatic repertoire.

Marta Kluczyńska conducted the world premieres of operas by the young Polish composers Jagoda Szmytka, Wojtek Blecharz, Sławomir Wojciechowski, and Marcin Stańczyk within the context of The P Project in 2013 and 2014.

She has led performances with orchestras such as Sinfonia Varsovia, Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra (Katowice), Polish Radio Orchestra (Warsaw), Lodz Philharmonic Orchestra, and Sinfonia Iuventus.

Marta Kluczyńska graduated with degrees in conducting and piano studies from The Fryderyk Chopin University of Music Warsaw. She attended master classes with Colin Metters, Gabriel Chmura, and Peter Eötvös, and workshops organized by the European Network of Opera Academies (ENOA).
