Superstar conductor Zubin Mehta was born in India in 1936. In his early 20s, he had become the youngest person ever to conduct the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic orchestras. Mehta’s other accomplishments include conducting the Vienna New Year’s Concert for 4 times, staging a production of the opera Turandot by Puccini in collaboration with Chinese director Zhang Yimou in the Forbidden City, Beijing, and working as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic commencing a tenure lasting 13 years, the longest in the orchestra’s history. At the New Year’s Eve of 2013, Maestro Mehta conducted the Guangzhou Opera House 2013 New Year Concert during his first visit to the city. His radiance, gracefulness and complete mastery of music has left an overwhelming impression on the audience.

On his returning to Guangzhou, Maestro Mehta is leading the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana (OCV). It is the resident orchestra of Valencia’s opera house, Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía. It comprises international musicians selected by the founder music director, Lorin Maazel, and has received much praise as “one of the best orchestras of recent years”. Maestro Zubin Mehta has also had close relations with the OCV since its creation, and has conducted the orchestra in operas such as Turandot (directed by Chinese director CHEN Kaige), Der Ring des Nibelungen, Salome, Tosca and Tristan und Isolde and in concerts.
