The 2021/22 season marks the beginning of Nicholas Carter’s tenure as Chief Conductor and Co-Operndirektor of Oper Bern. In his first season, he will lead three main stage productions – Don Carlos, Das Rheingold and Idomeneo and take part in the Berner Symphonieorchester subscription season. This season also includes debuts with The Metropolitan Opera New York (Brett Dean’s Hamlet) and Glyndebourne Festival Opera (Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro) and first visits to Seoul Philharmonic, Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec and Essener Philharmoniker.

From 2018-2021, Nicholas was Chefdirigent of Stadttheater Klagenfurt and the Kärntnersinfonieorchester, where he led many new productions and appeared regularly in the orchestra’s concert series. His repertoire there included widely celebrated productions of Tannhäuser, Pelleas et Melisande, Simon Boccanegra, Rusalka, Elektra, Cendrillon and La Clemenza di Tito.  For his   Fe Opera debut, he conducted Die Fledermaus, returning to much praise in 2021 for Eugene Onegin and has also led Deutsche Oper am Rhein’s Don Carlo and their most successful new production of Don Pasquale.

Born in Melbourne, Nicholas enjoys an ongoing relationship with all the major Australian orchestras, particularly with the Adelaide Symphony, where he served as Principal Conductor from 2016-2019. After serving as Kapellmeister and musical assistant to Simone Young at the Staatsoper Hamburg, Nicholas was invited in 2014 to take up a Kapellmeister position at the Deutsche Oper Berlin where he worked closely with GMD Donald Runnicles.
