Domingo Hindoyan


Domingo Hindoyan, the chief conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, is one of today’s most exciting conductors. During his first season in Liverpool, Hindoyan opened his tenure with a critically acclaimed conducting debut at the BBC Proms, after which he embarked upon various recording projects, the first of which was released in September 2022. He also collaborated with Liverpool’s well established “In Harmony educational program and continued to demonstrate his commitment to new music with various world premieres and commissions during his second season. Hindoyan’s latest recording with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic explores Roberto Sierra’s music over the last 25 years and was released in April 2023. 

Highlights of the 2023-24 season include performances in Europe with returns to the BBC Proms with Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Aarhus Symfonikester and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Then in the USA, he makes a string of debuts: with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra and Boston Symphony.

On the opera stage, this season sees Hindoyan make a return to the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin with a production of Madame Butterfly and to the Opera National de Bordeaux for a production of Rusalka. He also conducts a production of Turandot at Opera Dijon. In recent seasons, Hindoyan has led performances at the Chicago Lyric Opera, Liceu Opera Barcelona, Wiener Staatsoper, Teatro Real Madrid, Opera du Rhin, Royal Swedish Opera, Royal Opera House Muscat, Dresden Semperoper, and the Metropolitan Opera, where last season’s production was describes as a “Tosca to remember” (New York Classical Review).

Hindoyan continues to enjoy a vibrant career leading acclaimed ensembles and orchestras around the world including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Dresdner Philharmonie, New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Kansas City Symphony Orchestra, San Diego Symphony, New World Symphony, Czech Philharmonic, Orchestra National du Capitole de Toulouse and Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra. He has also conducted concerts and operas at many renowned festivals, such as the Menuhin Festival Gstaad and as a regular guest at the Festival Radio France Occitanie Montpellier.

Hindoyan was born in Caracas, Venezuela. He began his career as a violinist and member of the renowned Venezuelan musical education program El Sistema, and then was a member of Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. He later went on to study conducting in Europe at the Haute École de Musique de Genève with Professor Laurent Gay and was the first assistant to Daniel Barenboim at the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin between 2013 and 2016.
