About

Magdalena Pawlisz, born Feb 10th, 1990 in Gdynia, Poland, is an orchestral conductor for both opera and symphonic repertoire. Her interests are focused around two figures of 19th century music: Johannes Brahms and Richard Wagner. She also has a very big interest in the music of Karol Szymanowski, Grażyna Bacewicz and Krzysztof Penderecki.

In the past three seasons she served as an assistant conductor to GMD Enrico Calesso at the Mainfranken Theater Würzburg (Das Rheingold, Twilight of GodsNixon in China). This season she assisted Patrik Ringborg at the Göteborg Opera with Carmen, as a preparation to her opera debut with the same piece at the Skhid Opera later this year.

Magdalena holds a BA in Violin and a MA in Conducting, which she obtained at the University of Arts Berlin. At present she is pursuing her Doctorate of Arts dissertation studies at the Academy of Music in Krakow.
