He has been closely involved in the preparation of new works with both The Royal Opera and Royal Ballet, including works by Harrison Birtwistle, Oliver Knussen and Thomas Adès. He was Musical Director for City of Birmingham Touring Opera's The Two Widows, creating a chamber reduction of the orchestral parts of piano and string quartet, and has conducted Paul Bunyan, Stiffelio, Eugene Onegin, The Tsarina's Slippers and Rigoletto for The Royal Opera.

  1. Wishing Constantinos a speedy recovery. We had a magical evening last Thursday and I'm sure his conducting of the piece would have been getting better and better. My review of our evening is here: http://www.bringingupcharlie.co.uk/2012/02/night-at-opera.html
