HKAF Distinguished Cultural Leader Series (V)

In Conversation with David Pountney, Artistic Director of Welsh National Opera

Event Details

The HKAF Distinguished Cultural Leader Series invites creative leaders from the performing arts industry to discuss topics ranging from arts management and leadership, to their own personal journey and approach to their art.

Festival PLUS is delighted to present David Pountney, Artistic Director of Welsh National Opera (WNO) as our special guest in the fifth edition of HKAF Distinguished Cultural Leader Series. One of the world’s leading opera directors, Pountney gained international fame following his production of Katya Kabanova at the 1972 Wexford Festival and his pioneering Janáček cycle in collaboration with WNO. The veteran director is well recognised for his innovative approach and has directed more than 20 world premieres, many for lesserknown works. His prolific career includes titles such as Director of Productions for Scottish Opera and English National Opera, and Artistic Director of the Bregenz Festival (2003-2014). With a career spanning four decades, Mr Pountney will spark off a conversation with Angela Mackay, Managing Director-Asia Pacific of the Financial Times, talking about his passion for opera and the challenges facing the art form today
