As General Director and Artistic Director of Teatro Grattacielo, Stefanos Koroneos has always brought a passion for multidisciplinary arts and creative direction to everything he undertakes. Broad experience as a performer gives him particular understanding of the singer’s vantage point and he skillfully extracts excellence from those who work with him. He is a consensus-builder in all ways: directorial, collaborative and administrative.
Recent successes include the critically acclaimed curation and direction of Mozart’s Idomeneo and Don Giovanni in Greece and the U.S, as well as his award-winning visual treatment of Zandonai’s Giulietta e Romeo in Battery Park City, NY. Upcoming directorial engagements include two reprises of his Don Giovanni; Madama Butterfly; Carmen and La Vestale at venues such as Light Opera of New Jersey, La Tech in Monterrey, Mexico, the Cultural Center of Crete, the Megaron Thessaloniki and Teatro Grattacielo.
Mr. Koroneos has worked with some of opera’s most distinguished directors and conductors, including Franco Zeffirelli, Fabrizio Melano, Moisés Kaufman and Richard Bonynge. Informed by their respective experience and vision, he now transforms their
expertise into an evolving directorial style of his own.
His international career as a baritone featured appearances with Teatro alla Scala, Teatro Regio di Torino, Bolshoi Theater, New York City Opera, Palm Beach Opera, Tampa Opera, Gotham Chamber Opera, Greek National Opera, Den Nye Opera Netherlands, Staatstheater Freiburg, Theater Osnabrück.
