An internationally sought-after conductor, Roland Böer enjoys a fast-rising career that has seen him establish close links with many leading opera houses and orchestras. He has built long-term operatic relationships with Oper Frankfurt, the Opéra National du Rhin in Strasbourg and the Vienna Volksoper. Böer further maintains an ongoing relationship with the Royal Danish Opera, where he conducted Albert Herring directed by Keith Warner in 2012. Last season he appeared in Vienna, conducting a production of Rusalka and returned to Copenhagen to lead performances of Tannhäuser, directed by Kasper Holten. This season’s highlights include further appearances in Frankfurt for Idomeneo (following on from a successful Die Fledermaus last season) as well as conducting a new production of Adriana Lecouvreur with Opéra de Nice and a return to the Royal Liverpool Philhamonic for Haydn’s The Creation.
Böer has also worked extensively as a guest conductor at such houses as the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, Komische Oper Berlin, Deutsche Oper Berlin, La Scala Milan, English National Opera, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Royal Swedish Opera, Polish National Opera and Stadttheater Bern. On the concert platform, Roland Böer has worked with a growing list of orchestras including the Filarmonica della Scala, Orchestra dell’Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Bergen Philharmonic, Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Kaiserslautern, Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestra among others.
His work with chamber orchestras and ensembles has taken him to the Ensemble Modern, Northern Sinfonia, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. He enjoys a close relationship with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir.
Böer launched his career as Kapellmeister at Oper Frankfurt (2002-2008), having earlier worked there and at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf as a répétiteur. He was assistant to Antonio Pappano at Bayreuth, La Monnaie and Covent Garden. In 2009 he became Music Director of the ‘Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte’ summer festival in Montepulciano, where he works with high-profile artists and directs projects in collaboration with the RNCM in Manchester.
His discography includes the DVD/Blu-ray recording of Die Zauberflöte in William Kentridge’s production at La Scala, released on OPUS ARTE in 2012 to high critical acclaim. Last season he recorded works by Glazunov and Schumann with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra for broadcast on Bayerische Rundfunk.
