Schedule & Tickets

img01Steven Lipsitt is in his twelfth season as Music Director of the Boston Classical
Orchestra. The Boston Globe has observed:
“The concerts have a distinct profile, Lipsitt’s
and no one else’s. He has a knack.” First
Prize Laureate of the inaugural Dimitris
Mitropoulos International Conducting
Competition in November 1996, Steven
Lipsitt made his Russian debut with the St.
Petersburg Philharmonic in 1997, and is a
frequent guest conductor of orchestras in
the United States and abroad, including the
Athens Camerata, the West Czech Symph-
onic Orchestra, the State Symphony
Orchestra of São Paulo (Brasil), the Thunder
Bay Symphony Orchestra (Canada), the St. Petersburg Camerata of the Hermitage
Museum, the Chinese National Opera Orchestra, the Colorado Symphony, the North
Carolina Symphony, the San Diego Chamber Orchestra, the Spokane Symphony
Orchestra, and the Hudson Valley Philharmonic. He has served as cover conductor
for the symphony orchestras of St. Louis, Toronto, and Boston. Foreign critics have
hailed his “exalted and well-structured performances” (Le Monde de la Musique,
Paris) and praised his “technically and expressively balanced interpretations”
(Adesmeftos Typos, Athens).

As a conductor of opera, ballet, and music theater, Steven Lipsitt has collaborated
with Scottish Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, English National Opera, Boston Ballet, Saint
Louis Ballet, the Boston Music Theater Project, the Boston Conservatory Opera
Theatre, and Opera at Longy. He has worked with directors Robert Carsen, James
Hammerstein, and Gerald Gutierrez, and choreographers Peter Martins and Daniel
Pelzig. He conducted twenty performances of Carousel at the Kennedy Center Opera
House with Broadway stars Faith Prince and Tom Wopat. His concert performance of
scenes from Boris Godunov was called “an astonishingly vivid account” by The
Globe’s Richard Buell, who wrote: “Steven Lipsitt’s conducting showed real mastery.”
In 1994 his production of Viktor Ullmann’s Der Kaiser von Atlantis was called
“compelling” by The New York Times.
