Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra
Founded in 1918, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra is famed for the intense energy it brings to its performances. Led by principal conductor Lahav Shani, the orchestra is often commended for the huge range of colour in its sound.
Lahav Shani’s predecessors, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Valery Gergiev, have both had honorific titles conferred on them as honorary conductors of the orchestra. The orchestra’s most recent collaboration with Dutch National Opera was in 2021 with the The Seven Deadly Sins.
