The Italian conductor is greatly sought after by many of the world’s most prestigious opera houses. Following Lyric’s Il trovatore, he will travel to the Vienna State Opera (Andrea Chénier), La Scala in Milan (La traviata), and the Zurich Opera House (new production of Manon). Armiliato began the current season in Vienna (La traviata, L’elisir d’amore) and at the Metropolitan Opera (La fanciulla del West). The conductor has led nine works at San Francisco Opera and more than 25 at the Met, the latter highlighted by company premieres of Wolf-Ferrari’s Sly and Donizetti’s Anna Bolena. During the past two seasons he has earned acclaim for seven works in Vienna and four at the Met, as well as La fanciulla del West (Zurich Opera House) and Andrea Chénier and Tosca (Bavarian State Opera). His artistry has also been applauded at Madrid’s Teatro Real, Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu, and the Salzburg Festival. Armiliato’s discography includes projects with Renée Fleming, Angela Gheorghiu, Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, Jonas Kaufmann, and Rolando Villazón, among many other distinguished artists. In 2010 his CD Verismo with Renée Fleming won a Grammy Award. Among his extensive performances on DVD are the Met’s productions of Il trovatore, La fille du régiment, Lucia di Lammermoor, and La rondine.
