People of Note - Jonathan Lo
Cape Town City Ballet’s spectacular production of Prokoviev’s Romeo and Juliet Ballet is pulling in the crowds at the Artscape Opera House. The Cape Town hilharmonic is being conducted by a dynamic young conductor Jonathan Lo who was born in Hong Kong but who now lives in England. Jonathan is in great demand internationally as a ballet conductor and in fact Dance Europe calls him “the greatest ballet conductor we have in the UK”. Jonathan has certainly made his mark with our CPO who sound magnificent in the pit with this difficult and colourful score. Rodney Trudgeon invited Jonathan Lo into the People of Note studio to talk about his career.
