Gustavo Dudamel

Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel announced today that he will step down as Music Director of Paris Opera in July, at the end of his second season — four years before his contract was to expire through the 2026-27 season.

He will keep his positions as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and of Simón Bolívar Orchestra of Venezuela.

“It is with a heavy heart, and after long consideration, that I announce my resignation as music director of the Paris Opera,” Dudamel writes in his official statement, “in order to spend more time with my family.”
