de Beer, Lotte

With upcoming engagements in opera houses including Theater an der Wien, Aalto Theater Essen, De Nederlandse Opera and the Munich Biennale, Lotte de Beer is one of the most sought after young opera directors of her generation. In the four years since she graduated winning the Ton Lutz award for most promising stage director, she has directed productions all over Europe to great acclaim. The New York Times called her production of Waiting for Miss Monroe (Holland Festival) ‘outstanding’. The magazine Opernwelt described her staging of Eugene Onegin as ‘overwhelming’ ‘entrancingly humorous’ and called it “Welttheater”. As artistic leader of the 25th anniversary of the Muziektheater Amsterdam, she programmed 25 different music theatre productions together with De Nederlandse Opera and Het Nationale Ballet aimed most particularly at new audiences. It was an overwhelming success, attracting 11 000 visitors in a single weekend.
