Florentine Opera Company

Vladimir Kulenovic is the first recipient of a new conducting residency at the Florentine Opera.

He has been working closely with the cast and orchestra to help the opera open its season with a new production of Richard Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman.

A collaboration between The Solti Foundation U.S. and Florentine Opera offers two emerging conductors, one now and one in the spring, private coaching and mentorship as well as opportunities to conduct staging/orchestra rehearsals.

Fall conducting resident Vladimir Kulenovic has been in Milwaukee for the past two and a half weeks. When he is not in residency here in Milwaukee, he is the Associate Conductor of the Utah Symphony, Resident Conductor of the Belgrade Philharmonic, and the newly appointed music director of the Lake Forest Symphony in Illinois.
