“Pierre Bleuse, one of the most brilliant conductors of his generation and without a doubt a big name on the international scene in the close future”, “Pierre’s work is remarkable” state Bertrand Chamayou and Gautier Capuçon. Greatly supported by many international soloists, possessing an inspiring enthusiasm and charismatic authority, Pierre Bleuse is starting a leading international career.

He also returns to Opéra National de Lyon to take on Dido and Aeneas, and in his native France conducts Orchestre Symphonique et Lyrique de Nancy, Orchestre de l’Opéra de Tours, and Orchestre d’Auvergne. In 2017 Pierre Bleuse is invited to Utah Symphony Orchestras after being noticed by Thierry Fischer at Salzburg Mozarteum during an Animato Foundation Orchestra tour 3 years earlier.

He is also supported strongly by Opera de Lyon, where he made his debut in November 2017. He conducts the orchestra again in February 2018 at the prestigious Victoires de la Musique, working on that occasion with Angela Gheorghiu, Gautier Capuçon and Paul Meyer.

Being very involved in contemporary repertoire, Michael Jarrell asks him to conduct his opera Cassandre in January 2017, performing at the Grand Théâtre de Provence with Fanny Ardant and the Lemanic Modern Ensemble, for which he is Joint-Musical Director. On this occasion he ties nots with the composer who invites him to conduct his anniversary concert in October 2018 in Victoria Hall (Geneva) with Lemanic Modern Ensemble, designer and producer of the event, and Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.

Pierre Bleuse creates the Musika Orchestra Academy in 2008 in partnership with Orchestre du Capitol de Toulouse, considered a place or great exchange and collaboration between musicians and players of the musical sphere.
