45-year-old Croatian conductor Ivan Repusic has been appointed as General Music Director of Leipzig’s opera and will take up his post from the 2025/26 season. The decision has still to be validated by the City Council, but this is more or less a formality.

Ivan Repusic is currently Chief Conductor of the Munich Radio Orchestra, and Principal Conductor-designate of the Staatskapelle Weimar.

Born in Croatia in 1978, he studied conducting at the Academy of Music in Zagreb with Igor Gjadrov and Vjekoslav Sutej. After serving as Chief Conductor and Opera Director of the Croatian National Theatre in Split, Music Director of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, Chief Conductor of the Zadar Chamber Orchestra, Principal Conductor of the Staatsoper Hannover and Principal Guest Conductor of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Ivan Repusic was appointed General Music Director of the Staatsoper Hannover for the 2016/2017 season.
