WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: The Tuscan-born Luisotti began his tenure as the new music director of the San Francisco Opera in September 2009, and conducted four operas in his inaugural season. When he arrived in San Francisco last year, he was welcomed with open arms. He served as Civic Grand Marshal of the 141st annual Italian Heritage Parade, the oldest civic event of its kind in the United States, and performed for audiences numbering more than 40,000 in a free concert in Golden Gate Park and a free live simulcast of Il Trovatore at AT&T Park.
