His operatic conducting debut was at the Norwegian Opera, leading quickly to an appointment as music director there. He was soon noted for his English National Opera, the San Francisco Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Berlin Staatsoper, and Théâtre du Chatelet in Paris. At the age of thirty-two (1992) he was appointed Music Director of Théâtre Royale de la Monnaie, where he is responsible for both opera and concert performances.

He made a spectacular debut at the Vienna Staatsoper in 1993, replacing Christoph von Dohnanyi at the last minute to lead a new production of Wagner's Siegfried.

He was appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra has also conducted the Oslo Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre de Lyon, the Chicago Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic, and the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Cleveland Orchestra.
