Principal Conductor: Washington National Opera Principal Conductor: Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra
With artistic endeavours ranging from Mozart with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment to Wagner’s complete cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, and Terence Blanchard’s contemporary masterpiece Fire Shut Up in My Bones, Rogister — a dual citizen of the United States and Germany — is one of the most eclectic and versatile conductors on the international scene.
Rogister returns to The Metropolitan Opera in the 2023/24 season to lead Terence Blanchard’s Grammy Award-winning work Fire Shut Up in My Bones. He will also conduct The Met Opera’s 2024 Laffont Competition Grand Finals Concert. Across the 23/24 season, Rogister returns to the Semperoper Dresden for multiple series of Die Zauberflöte performances. Additional highlights this season include a new production of Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette for Washington National Opera, directed by Simon Godwin, and concerts with the Badische Staatskapelle.
Equally at home on the concert stage as in the pit, recent symphonic projects include collaborations with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic, l’Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, l’Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Essen Philharmoniker, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Spoleto Festival Orchestra, North Carolina Symphony, and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
