Sonia Ben-Santamaria is the first female conductor to be associated with the Royal Opera House Jette Parker Young Artists Programme (2017/18) where she shadowed Sir Antonio Pappano on Shostakovitch's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. She also assisted David Murphy on the world premiere of Ravi Shankar's Sukanya which was co-produced by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and which she also had the opportunity to conduct.  In addition she led the Youth Opera Company in the Barrie Kosky production of Bizet’s Carmen and conducted Higgins’s The Monstrous Child, which opened the new Linbury Theatre.

Sonia Ben-Santamaria was one of six conductors selected worldwide for the Linda and Mitch Hart Institute at The Dallas Opera, Texas, where she was invited to conduct the TDO Orchestra Gala. She is a multi-award winning pianist, accompanist and repetiteur and studied at the Conservatoire de Toulouse and the Royal Academy of Music, where she received the Power Biggs Award, the Musicians’ Benevolent Fund Award for Répétiteurs and the Major Van Someren-Godfrey Memorial Prize for Accompaniment in English Song. She went on to the National Opera Studio where she won the Leonard Hancock Memorial Trust Prize and subsequently joined the English National Opera.

Forthcoming highlights in 2019/2020 include conducting two performances of Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera for Opera Holland Park and she will join Opera North as their first female conductor associate.
