Roberto Rizzi Brignoli: Conductor


Roberto Rizzi Brignoli graduated in piano studies at the Conservatoire G. Verdi in Milan, where he also completed his studies in composition and in orchestra conduction. It was Maestro Gavazzeni who subsequently introduced him to Teatro alla Scala, where he later collaborated for a long time and became head of musical services within the artistic management till 2002.
This experience turned out to be of paramount importance for his artistic development, most especially when he met M. Riccardo Muti, of whom he was the assistant in many opera and symphonic productions – particularly Verdi ones - at Teatro alla Scala.
The event that made him famous at national as well as international level was the conduction of Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia, during the opera season 1997-98 at Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
He has conducted many opera productions as Otello, La Traviata, Rigoletto, I Due Foscari, L'elisir D'amore, Adriana Lecouvreur, La Fille Du Régiment, at more than 30 theaters like Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Opera of Rome, Teatro Verdi in Trieste, Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro, Sferisterio in Macerata, Teatro Comunale in Florence, the Frankfurt Opera, Chorégies d'Orange …
