Jennifer Condon Conductor    

Jennifer Condon is an Australian conductor based in Germany. Having spent 6 years as a prompt at the Hamburg State Opera, she has a repertoire of over 55 operas and an affinity with many of the world's finest singers. Working freelance as a prompt and assistant conductor since 2014, she has been booked for engagements at the Zurich Opera, Semperoper Dresden, Berlin State Opera, The Bayreuth Festival, Dutch National Opera, Hungarian State Opera and the Tokyo Nikikai Opera. Jennifer is one of six female conductors chosen from an international field to participate in The Dallas Opera's inaugural Institute of Women Conductors in November 2015.

The world premiere recording of Sappho has been Jennifer's greatest achievement to date. She re-discovered fellow Australian Peggy Glanville-Hicks' abandoned opera - deciphering the manuscripts and conducting an internationally renowned cast. The CD was released for the composer's centenary in 2012. Jennifer is currently completing a Ph.D. on Sappho and working towards a world premiere production of the work.
