Further studies took him to New York and Madrid. Maestro Lanzillotta has performed as guest director in many of Italy’s spectacular venues, with ensembles including the National Orchestra of the RAI Turin, the Swiss Italian Orchestra, Filarmonica Toscanini of Parma, and the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra. As principal guest conductor of the Varna Opera Theater in Bulgaria, he has directed productions including Cavalleria Rusticana, Pagliacci, Marriage of Figaro, Carmen, and La Bohème. After a series of concerts in February 2014 with the Orchestra Filarmonica Toscanini, Maestro Lanzillotta was appointed principal conductor for the next three years. During the fall of 2014, he directed Don Checco at Teatro San Carlo in Naples. He will take the podium for a new work by Battistelli, entitled Toto and the Doctor of the Insane with the Opéra de Nancy. Further plans include returning to the Swiss Italian Orchestra, the Haydn Orchestra of Bolzano, and the National Orchestra of the RAI Turin, as well as touring Germany, and conducting the Verdi Orchestra of Milan at Expo 2015.
