Martin will return to Tirana (Albania) in April to oversee the International Singing Competition (Marie Kraja), a Festival with which he has a long and happy association. This marvellous event will reunite him with the creator of the Competition, Zana Çela
News update 29 November: Martin is thrilled to announce that he has agreed representation with Musichall Ltd: he is looking forward to a happy and fruitful collaboration with Peter Hall and his wonderful team!
Please see more on this announcement.
"Martin André conducted the Opera North orchestra with such colour and schwung that it practically became a character in its own right."
Following the success of the Janáček and Ravel operas that Martin conducted for Opera North (UK) last year, he will return to the Company this autumn to conduct Lehár´s iconic opera The Merry WIdow. This opera will reunite him with the stage director Giles Havergal, with whom Martin enjoyed two very happy collaborations: The Barber of Seville (Welsh National Opera) and Ariadne auf Naxos (Vancouver Opera).
Look at this video of the show!
