Dutch director Jetske Mijnssen stages productions at opera houses right across Europe. The psychological intensity of the characters is front and centre in her work, emanating from an intensive investigation of the music. Most recently she has presented Idomeneo, Orlando paladino (Joseph Haydn) and Hippolyte et Aricie (Jean-Philippe Rameau) at the Opernhaus Zürich, Eugen Onegin and Don Carlo at the Oper Graz, L’Orfeo (Claudio Monteverdi) at Det Kongelige Teater in Copenhagen, Katja Kabanowa at the Komische Oper Berlin and Maria Stuarda (Gaetano Donizetti) at De Nederlandse Opera Amsterdam. She shares a long-standing collaboration with stage and costume designer Ben Baur. La Traviata was already produced at Theater Bern in 2013 with conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla. The Lithuanian native has been Musical Director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra since the 2016/2017 season. In 2022, she made her conductor’s debut at the Bayerische Staatsoper with The Cunning Little Vixen and now returns for Pelléas et Mélisande.
