Speaker: Dr Luke Dolman

For this year’s Brian Coghlan Memorial Lecture, Adelaide-based conductor and teacher Luke Dollman, has chosen to talk about “The Great Conductors of Bayreuth” (a topic that was of considerable interest to the late Professor Coghlan). Do come along, invite your friends, and hear about some of the notable musicians who have conducted the works of Richard Wagner in the very theatre that Richard had built!

In the field of opera he has been a regular guest at the Finnish National Opera, and has also worked for Opera Australia, the State Opera of South Australia, and the Netherlands Opera.  Luke is a graduate of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and furthered his studies at the Aspen Festival of Music and Accademia Chigiana in Italy. He is Senior Lecturer in Conducting and Deputy Director at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, University of Adelaide.
