Marc Clémeur
Biography
Born in Antwerp, Marc Clémeur studied theatre studies and musicology at university in Cologne, before going on to work as a stage direction assistant to Götz Friedrich in Amsterdam, Bayreuth, and Düsseldorf. He became a producer of classical music for Belgian radio and television in 1977. In 1984, he was appointed Director of the Vlaams Filharmonisch Orkest; in 1989, he became Director General of Vlaamse Opera, which, under his management, built up an international reputation. In 2009, he became director general of the Opéra National du Rhin, where he oversaw an original project that aimed to present a broad view of the repertoire, from baroque music to the music of our time, with a particular focus on contemporary composers, including Battistelli, Eötvös, and Manoury. He devoted a cycle to Janáèek, which was directed by Robert Carsen, and also staged rarely seen French works by Charpentier, Rameau, Thomas, Meyerbeer, Bizet, and Chausson. He actively sought to reach younger audiences and, on his initiative, the Colmar-based Opéra Studio developed as a centre for the production of operas for children. After a long career in the musical world, Marc Clémeur is now frequently asked to be an artistic adviser to opera houses and competitions and is often invited to serve as a member of the jury of prestigious international competitions.
