British Conductor Leo Hussain (*1978) has been named Principal Conductor at the opera of Rouen (France). His contract is to run from September 2014 through August 2017. Leo Hussain came to international attention in 2009, when he was appointed as Music Director at the Landestheater Salzburg and also made a sensational debut at Théâtre de la Monnaie, Brussels, in a universally acclaimed new production of Ligeti Le Grand Macabre by La Fura dels Baus.

Following this, Hussain has quickly been invited to some of the world’s major orchestras and opera houses, including the Wiener Symphoniker, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, Berliner Staatsoper, Theater an der Wien, English National Opera, Mariinsky Theatre, Frankfurt Opera and several projects at La Monnaie.
