A CONDUCTOR of surpassing elegance and lively spirit, Jesús López Cobos has died in Berlin at the age of 78.

López Cobos made his professional debut in 1969, leading Die Zauberflöte at La Fenice. His international reputation grew in the 1970s, with debuts at Deutsche Oper Berlin, San Francisco Opera, Opéra de Paris and Covent Garden. He was appointed music director of the Deutsche Oper Berlin in 1981, continuing in that position until 1990; in 1987, López Cobos led the Deutsche Oper forces in the first full Ring cycle staged in Japan. He also served as principal guest conductor of the LPO (1981–86); music director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (1986–2001), where he remained music director emeritus at the time of his death; the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne (1990–2000); and the Teatro Real (2003–10).

López Cobos conducted thirty-six performances of four operas at the Met. He made his company debut in February 1978, pacing Montserrat Caballé, Fiorenza Cossotto and José Carreras in a revival of Cilèa’s Adriana Lecouvreur. Later that month, López Cobos conducted the Met’s new production of Donizetti’s Favorita, with Cossotto, Luciano Pavarotti and Sherrill Milnes. López Cobos was then absent from the Met until 2005, when he returned to lead a revival of Massenet’s Manon, with Renée Fleming. The Met teamed the conductor and the soprano again in 2008, for a new John Cox staging of Massenet’s Thaïs. 

A prolific recording artist, López Cobos led essential performances on disc of Rossini’s Otello (Philips, 1978) and of the original, unadorned version of Lucia di Lammermoor (Philips, 1976).

Laurent Pelly's arresting production of Leonard Berstein's Candide was dark and satirical, smartly juxtaposing the exuberant buoyancy of the music with the cruelty of Voltaire's message - all is not for the best in this best of all possible worlds. The show leapt out of a book: Chantal Thomas's set placed the action on sheaves of paper, and projections created by 59 Productions ranged from blood stains to old engravings of jungles. Mr Pelly also created the witty costumes - in the Venice casino scene, for example, characters were actually wearing money.
