Kazushi Ono has been the permanent chief conductor of Opéra de Lyon since 2008.
"It's really honorable even more so when we think about other nominated companies such as Teatro alla Scala, Covent Garden (Royal Opera House) and Oper Stuttgart.
This is my last year at Opéra de Lyon. Now people in Lyon are so excited with the news.
As the chief conductor, I have been responsible for the performance of the orchestra as well as determining the direction of the opera house working closely with the programmers and stage directors.
The last 2 performances were highly acclaimed by the critics and audience. After the 9 years of efforts, I feel like being rewarded with this title".
