Valentin Uryupin

Following the example of Teodor Currentzis, Russian conductor Valentin Uryipin has left the Perm Academic Opera and Ballet. Currentzis resigned as Artistic Director due to his mistrust in public administration.

Valentin Uryupin was born in 1985 in Lozovaja (Ukraine) and graduated from the Moscow Conservatory as a clarinet player (2009) and conductor (2012). His teachers include conductor Gennady Rozhdestvensky and clarinetist Evgeny Petrov. Uryupin has also worked as an assistant conductor to Valery Gergiev and Vladimir Jurowski. He has won numerous awards and was the first-prize winner of the 2017 Georg Solti Conducting Competition in Frankfurt
