Emmanuelle Haïm is highly acclaimed as a performer and champion of the Baroque repertoire, both as a keyboard player and conductor. This season she will make her debut with the Concertgebouw Orchestra as well as returning to the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and to Zurich Opera, for a new production of Rameau’s Platée. She has developed a strong relationship with both the Berliner Philharmoniker and Los Angeles Philharmonic, whom she has conducted regularly over several years. In recent seasons she has made her debuts with the New York Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus, and the Wiener Philharmoniker, with performances in Vienna and at the Lucerne Festival.
Emmanuelle has conducted regularly at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, including Theodora (Handel) and L’Incoronazione di Poppea (Monteverdi). She has also conducted Hippolyte et Aricie (Rameau) with Zurich Opera, and was the first woman to conduct at Chicago Lyric Opera (Handel’s Giulio Cesare).
In 2000 Emmanuelle founded Le Concert d’Astrée, which has quickly established an international reputation through concert and opera performances and many award-winning recordings.
