The Royal Opera House has officially announced the extension to its music director’s contract, adding:

During a sabbatical year in the 2020/21 season, Pappano will make appearances in venues across the world, including New York’s Metropolitan Opera, the Teatro Alla Scala in Milan and Staatsoper Berlin.

Antonio Pappano said: ‘I am absolutely delighted to continue as Music Director of the Royal Opera House until at least 2022/23. This place feels like my home and I am so excited to continue my artistic journey here, conducting the repertory that Oliver Mears and I have developed together while continuing my collaboration with the finest Orchestra and Chorus in the world’.
