Biography

"All that he does turns to musical gold. He is highly imaginative and perceptive, meticulous in preparation, equally accomplished in opera and symphonic music" are the words of Musical America when describing Constantinos Carydis. Following a celebrated new production of Bizet’s Carmen at Oper Frankfurt in June 2016, Constantinos Carydis made his highly successful debut at the Salzburger Festspiele in two Mozart matinee concerts with the Mozarteum Orchestra only shortly afterwards. He has already been invited for more Mozart matinees in 2017.

Engagements of the 2016/17 season will lead him to the Münchner Philharmoniker, Wiener Symphoniker at Bregenzer Festspiele, Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg, Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg and Frankfurter Museumgesellschaft. In opera he will return to Oper Frankfurt for a new production of Händel’s Xerxes.
