Diego Matheuz is a graduate of the internationally known Venezuelan Sistema, and is already widely known as one of the most promising talents from the Americas. Diego held the title of Principal Conductor of Teatro la Fenice from September 2011 to 2015, and continues to return regularly. From 2013 to 2016 Diego was also Principal Guest Conductor of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Last season he conducted the Konzerthausorchester Berlin at the ECHO Klassik Awards, broadcast live on ZDF TV.

An accomplished opera conductor, this season Diego returns to Spain for his debut at the Palau de les Arts in Valencia conducting Madama Butterfly (following his Spanish opera debut at the Liceu Barcelona in the 2014/15 season). Later this season Diego will conduct a double bill of Wolf-Ferrari’s Il Segreto di Susanna and Poulenc’s La Voix Humaine at the Teatro Regio Torino featuring soprano Anna Caterina Antonacci, and Rossini’s Adina o Il califfo di Bagdad at the Rossini Festival Pesaro. Last season he gave significant performances in Germany with Rigoletto at the Deutsche Oper and Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Deutsche Staatsoper. Diego made his professional opera debut in October 2010 conducting Rigoletto at Teatro la Fenice, and following his appointment as Principal Conductor he conducted two operas and several concerts a season in Venice including a Tchaikovsky symphony cycle and productions of La Traviata, La Bohème, The Rake’s Progress and Carmen. He has twice conducted the prestigious New Year concert at Teatro la Fenice, broadcast live on RAI television and subsequently released on DVD.

Diego’s orchestral engagements this season are focused in Europe, where he conducts the Brussels Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Orchestre National de Bordeaux Aquitaine, Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana and Warsaw Philharmonic among others. He also returns to Japan to work with Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra.

Building a strong early career in Italy, in October 2008 Diego made his debut with Claudio Abbado’s Orchestra Mozart in Bologna. A year later he was appointed their Principal Guest Conductor. In September 2009, he joined the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale Santa Cecilia as replacement for their Music Director, Antonio Pappano on tour in Milan, Turin and Lucerne, and has made several subsequent appearances in Rome. Other Italian institutions Diego has worked with include Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai Torino, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala and the Spoleto Festival.
