The history of the ensemble L’Orchestra dell’Opera Carlo Felice Genova begins in the early 1900s. Its symphonic and operatic activity has continued ever since, uninterrupted even throughout the bombings of 1943 with the destruction of the ancient Teatro Carlo Felice.
In 1965, the Orchestra took on an organic structure, and evolved by developing a repertoire that ranges from the XVII century to contemporary music, standing out in the national institutional scene and distinguishing itself for both its productivity and versatility. Since the 1950s, conductors of international importance have alternated on the podium of its orchestra, including Victor De Sabata, Tullio Serafin, Igor Stravinsky, Franco Capuana, Vittorio Gui, Sergiu Celibidache, Hermann Scherchen, Sir John Barbirolli, Claudio Abbado, Francesco Molinari-Pradelli , Carlo Maria Giulini, Riccardo Muti, Georges Prêtre, Mstislav Rostropovič, Giuseppe Patanè, Vladimir Delman, Gianandrea Gavazzeni, Spiros Argiris, Peter Maag, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Myung-Whun Chung, Yury Aronovič.
More recently, Daniel Oren (Principal conductor of the Orchestra in the second half of the 1980s and from 2007 to 2010), Antonio Pappano, Christian Thielemann, Daniele Gatti, Gary Bertini, Gennadij Roždestvenskij, Gianluigi Gelmetti, Rudolf Baršaj, Bruno Campanella , Lorin Maazel, Zubin Mehta, Nello Santi, Michel Plasson (Principal Guest Conductor of the ensemble in the early 2000s), Bruno Bartoletti, Sir Neville Marriner, Lu Jia, Juanjo Mena (Principal Guest Conductor of the ensemble from 2007 to 2010), Dmitrij Kitajenko, Manfred Honeck, Juraj Valčuha, Kyrill Petrenko, Hartmut Haenchen, Vladimir Fedoseev, Andrea Battistoni (Principal Guest Conductor from 2013 to 2016), Daniel Smith (Principal Guest Conductor from 2017 to 2019).
From the 2020-2021 season, Fabio Luisi (Honorary conductor since 2012) has been the protagonist of numerous concerts dedicated to the great European Romantic symphonic repertoire – with a specific focus to the composer Anton Bruckner – whose work has been intertwined by Luisi with a exploratory journey of Luciano Berio’s symphonic work since 2022 (considering the centennial birth anniversary of the composer from Oneglia, which will be celebrated in 2025). Donato Renzetti (since 2022, Conductor Emeritus), in 2021 conducted the first modern performance of Bianca e Fernando by Vincenzo Bellini in the version “Genova, 1828” as part of a larger project to rediscover the Civiltà musicale genovese promoted by the Theatre. He has been a regular guest of the Theater since the 2020-2021 season, and he has directed numerous concerts dedicated to the discovery of the European music heritage of the XX century.
In 2022, Riccardo Minasi was appointed Music Director.
