With OPERANORD and the Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen, Anne Marie Granau co-conducted (with Hannu Lintu) the world premiere of Jovanka Trbojevic’ opera Heart in a Plastic Bag. She further conducted the Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen in the Ice Breaker project and appeared with the ensemble at the Cannes Festival in 2009. She was subsequently invited to take up the position of assistant conductor at the Royal Opera House in Copenhagen, a position she held from 2010-2014.
