Riccardo Muti

Last Wednesday I photographed Chicago Symphony Orchestra‘s music director and conductor, Riccardo Muti, in his dressing room at Orchestra Hall during an interview with Dennis Polkow, for New City.

Muti is returning to work after an accident last February (he fainted at the podium during a rehearsal, resulting in facial fractures). The maestro will conduct Verdi’s Otello tomorrow–April 7th–and also on April 9th and 12th. More info on the concerts here.
