Vienna Symphony Orchestra Names Marie Jacquot as its Principal Guest Conductor

The 33-year-old is also Principal Conductor designate at the Royal Danish Theatre Copenhagen


French conductor Marie Jacquot will take on her new title as the new Principal Guest Conductor of the Vienna Symphony at the opening of the 2023/24 season.

Jacquot made her debut with the orchestra for their pandemic-induced "Living Room Concerts" in 2020, and since then has returned to work with the ensemble at the Bregenz Festival, the Konzarthaus Vienna, and the Musikverein.

Jacquot initially studied the trombone in Paris, then pursued conducting studies in Vienna and Weimar. She was the 2019 recipient of the Ernest Schuch Prize and was nominated for Newcomer of the Year at the International Opera Awards. She has also worked as the assistant to Kirill Petrenko at the Bavarian State Opera.

Jacquot regularly appears with orchestras such as DSO Berlin, the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, and the Staatskapelle Dresden. In August 2024, she will take up a post as Principal Conductor of the Royal Danish Theatre Copenhagen.

"The Wiener Symphoniker are a mirror of the city, its openness and its joie de vivre," said Jan Nast, the Intendant of the Vienna Symphony. "I am all the more pleased that Marie Jacquot, as Principal Guest Conductor of the Wiener Symphoniker, will be making music with this orchestra in this city and beyond from the 23-24 season."

"Marie Jacquot is a great conductor, discovers a new repertoire in her first programs with the Symphoniker — and her claim to making music as a collective journey of discovery includes us all. I look forward to future concerts with her."
