Andrea Molino, composer and conductor, was born in Turin and studied in Turin, Milan, Venice, Paris and Freiburg. He lives in Paris and Zurich.
With the Pocket Opera Company Nuremberg in Nuremberg he realized the smiling carcass (1999) and Those Who Speak In A Faint Voice (2001), about the death penalty (both in collaboration with Oliviero Toscani), first examples of his commitment to innovative, multimedia-oriented music theatre.
His multimedia staged concert un Temps vécu, ou qui pourrait l'être was premiered in 2008 at Le Fresnoy, in Lille, where he was “Invited Artist”. In 2009, as Artistic Director of the World Venice Forum, he curated the Festival The Garden of Forking Paths. At the Basilica dei Frari he conducted the Orchestra della Fenice in his multimedia concert Of Flowers And Flames. Three Mile Island was first performed in 2012 at the ZKM in Karlsruhe (Music Theatre Now Award 2013); the Italian Premiere followed at the Teatro India in Rome. His most recent opera, – there is no why here –, was premiered at the Teatro Comunale di Bologna in 2014 and revived in May 2015 in Antwerp at deSingel for the Vlaamse Opera (Opera XXI Festival).
