The British musician is currently concertmaster of the Royal Opera House Orchestra


Dallas Opera has appointed Peter Manning as its new guest concertmaster and guest conductor from the 2015-16 season. The British violinist is currently concertmaster of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in London and has conducted such ensembles as the Royal Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Soloists of The Royal Opera House.

‘I have admired the transformation of The Dallas Opera over the last five years, and its commitment to the highest possible artistic standards,’ said Manning. ‘They have begun creating something exceptional, looking beyond the walls of the opera house.’

Manning’s first performance as concertmaster with the company will be in a production of Puccini’s Tosca, conducted by music director Emmanuel Villaume.
