In May 2014, Omer Meir Wellber made his UK debut at the Glyndebourne Festival with Eugene Onegin. Andrew Clark wrote at the Financial Times about the performance:
“Few stagings in my experience have pierced this inner world as vividly as Graham Vick’s 1994 Glyndebourne version, and at this latest revival it does so with greater wisdom and power than ever. It starts with one huge advantage – the conducting of UK debutant Omer Meir Wellber, who exposes the core of Tchaikovsky’s emotional outpourings with a reading that combines intense lyricism and, in the dance scenes, virtuosic vitality. The London Philharmonic’s double basses have never sounded so rich and deep. Add an immaculate chorus – bouquets to chorus master Jeremy Bines – and you have the foundation of an exceptional performance.” (Financial Times. 19 May 2014)

Following his acclaimed debut  at the Glyndebourne Festival the London Philharmonic Orchestra  immediately invited Wellber to make his Royal Festival debut with them in April 2015. Please click here for further details.
