We are thrilled to welcome David Briskin to our Dance roster for general management.
American-Canadian Conductor David Briskin is widely recognized as one of contemporary ballet’s most accomplished conductors, noted both for the range of his repertoire and the insightfulness of his musical interpretations.

The 2022/23 season began in London where Briskin served as Music Supervisor and Conductor for Nureyev Legend and Legacy at Theatre Royal Drury Lane featuring an international cast of celebrated dancers accompanied by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia. The performance may be seen on Marquee TV.
In November, Briskin will conduct the world premiere of MADDADDAM, a collaboration between Canadian author Margaret Atwood, choreographer Wayne McGregor and composer Max Richter for The National Ballet of Canada. Additional performances this season with the company included Alexei Ratmansky’s Romeo and Juliet and James Kudelka’s Cinderella, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Concerto, Balanchine’s Symphony in C, David Dawson’s Anima Animus, and Alonzo King’s The Collective Agreement. He will also conduct the Fourteenth Annual Competition for the Erik Bruhn Prize
