First Opera Direttrice in Italy!

Bologna’s Teatro Communale is making Italian history by appointing for the very first time a woman as head of an opera house.

After having been Music Director of the Graz Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra, Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv will step on her new role in January 2022. She is also well known to be the first woman to conduct an opera in the pit of Bayreuth.
