Mayor Jochen Partsch said:

"We are gaining a young, dynamic musician who will certainly give new impulses to our music city of Darmstadt. I am particularly happy that Daniel Cohen has committed to our theater for five years. The unanimous vote of the search committee, the orchestra and the opera ensemble are also reasons to be very happy. "


Art and Culture Minister Boris Rhein said

"With Daniel Cohen, we are gaining a young, but still very experienced artist for Darmstadt and the state of Hesse. He is undoubtedly one of the great talents of his generation, which is why I am delighted that he has chosen our state theater. I am curious to see which artistic priorities he will set in the coming years. Daniel Cohen certainly has the potential to shape an era. "

Daniel Cohen said:

I am honored to be in a house where music has been made by such giants as Erich Kleiber and Karl Böhm and where I experienced such joyous music making and devotion to artistic expression. I am truly delighted to join such a furtail theater, a place that embraces challenges and is committed to the highest artistic goals.”

 

Following his successful debut at the Staatsoper Berlin, conducting Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring in the 2016- 17 season, Cohen was invited back to the Staatsoper to conduct performances of Die Zauberflöte and Il barbiere di Siviglia, as well as the revival of Klaus Guth’s production of Britten’s Turn of the Screw.
