As an internationally renowned symphonic and operatic conductor, Gustavo Dudamel is motivated by a profound belief in music's power to unite and inspire. Currently serving as music director of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela and music and artistic director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the impact of his leadership extends from the greatest concert stages to classrooms, cinemas and innovative digital platforms around the world. Dudamel also appears as guest conductor with some of the world’s most famous musical institutions: In 2017, he leads the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in Munich, tours Europe with the Berlin Philharmonic and takes the Vienna Philharmonic on a tour of the Americas, with concerts in New York’s Carnegie Hall, Mexico City’s Bellas Artes, Bogota’s Teatro Mayor as well as the famed Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires. This season also sees Dudamel’s return to the opera house, conducting a new production of Puccini’s La bohème at the Opéra national de Paris.
