Jeffrey Tate (b1943)

Jeffrey Tate was educated at Farnham Grammar School, where he already showed precocious musical aptitude, and then at Christ’s College, Cambridge, where he read medicine. He qualified as a doctor after further study at St Thomas’s Hospital, London, but abandoned a clinical career for music, entering the London Opera Centre as a student répétiteur in 1969. The following year he joined the music staff of the Royal Opera Company, Covent Garden, as a répétiteur. During his time at Covent Garden he worked with numerous distinguished conductors including Colin Davis, Rudolf Kempe, Carlos Kleiber and Georg Solti. He was invited by Pierre Boulez to assist him on the centenary production of Wagner’s Ring cycle at the Bayreuth Festival in 1976 and on the first performances of the three-act version of Berg’s Lulu in Paris in 1979. In addition he assisted Herbert von Karajan at Salzburg and John Pritchard at Cologne. He made his conducting debut at Gothenburg with Carmen in 1978, and during the following year substituted for James Levine at short notice to conduct Lulu at the Metropolitan Opera, to great critical and public acclaim: thus his international career as a conductor was effectively launched.
