Mr. Griglio made his debut in Philadelphia in November 2010 with the world premiere of the “Decameron”, a new opera commissioned by the American Composer Forum to seven Philadelphia composers. The opera featured the winners of the First International Lyric Competition “Città di Saluzzo”, held in September 2010, for which Mr. Griglio serves as Artistic Director. Decameron was then brought in tour to Italy in summer 2011, again under Mr. Griglio’s baton.
In 2012 he premiered the opera “Buffalo Soldier”, by Carlo Pedini and served as Artistic Director of the second International Lyric competition “Città di Saluzzo”, in collaboration with the Viotti Competition of Vercelli. In 2013 he conducted a new production of “Jago” in the United States and Italy and the world premiere of his own opera “Camille Claudel”.
Mr. Griglio has been awarded a fellowship by the Wagner Stiftung of Bayreuth for the 2010 Bayreuther Festspiele.
