"The real star of this production, however, is not onstage. She’s on the podium and her name is Speranza Scappucci." —DAILYNEWS, Jim Farber - May 2016

"Maestro Scappucci snapped the proceedings back into focus every time her authoritative baton came down, eliciting a reading of the score that was characterized by audacious spontaneity, effervescence and a keen sense of style...Clearly, the talented Speranza Scappucci is a podium star on the rise." —Opera Today - August 2015

"It may be titled “Cinderella,” but there is no question who the star of the production is... When she lifted the baton and launched into the overture, there was no mistaking this lady was a conducting pro... [Scappucci] made Rossini as exciting as Ben Hur at the chariot races!" —DC Theatre Scene - May 2015


Italian born conductor Speranza Scappucci is considered one of the most interesting conductors of her generation on the international scene. Highlights of her 2016-17 season included a successful Vienna debut acclaimed by public and critics with LA TRAVIATA at the Wiener Staatsoper, stepping in last minute to conduct the opening of the Wiener Opernball 2017 with the Wiener Staatsoper Orchestra, and being appointed the Principal Conductor at Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège beginning in the fall of 2017.

Equally at home in symphonic repertoire, Scappucci has conducted the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Orchestra . . .
