He conducted symphonic concerts at Teatro Sao Carlos Lisbon and Opéra de Rouen Normandie. In the summer of 2019 he got invited to conduct a production of Orfeo et Euridice at the Bad Kissinger Sommer.

In 2008, Sanguineti debuted with the Niedersächsisches Staatsorchester Hannover and from this moment on, he has been directing numerous new productions and revivals in many European theatres. Lately, he has been invited to conduct at the Staatsoper Hannover, the Lisbon Opera, the National Theatre Mannheim, the Staatstheater Braunschweig, the RSO Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, at the Beijing Music Festival in China and the Orchestra del Teatro Carlo Felice in Genua.

His vast repertoire ranges from Viennese operettas such as Die Fledermaus to German operas like Tristan and Isolde or Tannhäuser, without neglecting Italian and French styles and contemporary opera. L’Africaine, La Cenerentola, Il viaggio a Reims, La Forza del Destino, Macbeth and Powder Her Face are just some of the works that he has recently conducted, performing alongside international soloists such as Annette Dasch, Lucio Gallo, Stefania Bonfadelli, Silvia Tro Santafé, Simone Alaimo, Franco Farina and Albert Pesendorfer. Equally at home on the concert stage, Andrea expands his core repertoire which comprises the symphonies by Beethoven and Brahms, with more avant-garde compositions such as, for example, the Turangalîla symphony by Messiaen, Prométhée – Le Poème du feu by Skrjabin, or the Concerto for Orchestra Marco Polo by Tan Dun.

Andrea began his career as a conductor at a young age. After studying piano and composition in his hometown of Genoa, he attended conducting courses at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. When he was only 23 years old, he was awarded the diploma in conducting at the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milan under the guidance of Vittorio Parisi. He specialised in dramatic repertoire with Umberto Finazzi and was engaged as a repetiteur at the Opera National du Rhin in Colmar. Between 2011 and 2013 he was Principal Conductor and Assistant Music Director at the Mainfranken Theater in Würzburg, before he was summoned to become General Music Director in Görlitz and Principal Conductor of the Neue Lausitzer Philharmonie, positions he held until the end of the 2017/2018 season.

Coup de coeur absolu pour Andrea Sanguineti, qui dirige Stiffelio à l’Opéra du Rhin. Cet ancien chef de chant a tout du “maestro concertatore” à l’ancienne, qui guide fosse et plateu tout en tenant les rênes et en veillant au respect du style, faisant sonner le Symphonique de Mulhouse pour un orchestra italien. Il a le métier de chef de théâtre …. Le Figaro / Verdi / Stiffelio / Opéra du Rhin Strasbourg
