Willy Decker


Willy Decker, one of Europe's leading directors, has directed wonderful productions for leading opera companies all over the world, including Elektra in Amsterdam, La Traviata with Anna Netrebko at the Salzburg Festival, Lulu at the Vienna State Opera and the world premiere of Aribert Reimann's Das Schloss/The Castle. His most recent production was Peter Grimes at the New National Theatre in Tokyo. Engagements in 2014 include Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria at Zurich Opera. His collaborator on many productions was the stage and costume designer Wolfgang Gussmann – these included Die tote Stadt and La Traviata at the Salzburg Festival. Their beautiful production of Massenet's Werther first opened at Oper Frankfurt in the 2005/06 season. Willy Decker was Intendant of the Ruhrtriennale from 2009-2011. In 2001 he was honoured with France's »Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres«, for his services to cultural life. He has been an honorary professor at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music in Berlin since 2005.
