Frederik Boni

Stage director

I was born in Bologna (IT) the 1992, into an artistic family. Since my childhood, I have had a passion for opera and contemporary art. In 2014 I graduated from the University of Bologna, Department of Performing Arts, with a degree in the history of stage directing. In 2015 I got a Master's degree in opera stage directing in Verona, in collaboration with Academy "Silvio D'Amico"Roma.
For the last three years, I have worked as intern and volunteer assistant in some prestigious opera houses and festivals in Europe (Dutch National Opera, Wiener Staatsoper, Festival Aix en Provence...). I have been privileged to work with some of the greatest stage directors, including Peter Sellars, Sir David McVicar and Leo Muscato. Currently, as young director, I already had my debut and I have staged several opera productions for smaller opera companies. All of my works has received excellent reviews.
