After musical and theatrical studies, alongside a scientific curriculum (normalien, youngest agrégé in mathematics in France), Samuel SENE first devoted himself to the world of opera (Opéra-Comique, Théâtre du Châtelet, Orchestres de l'Etat de São Paulo-Brésil). He has conducted numerous operas and operettas (Carmen, Orphée aux Enfers, Hamlet, La Belle Hélène, Death in Venice, Norma, etc.). He also conducts many popular events, including the official Star Wars concert, the Jules Verne festival, the sing-along cinema L'écran pop and the Bond Symphonique concert at the Grand Rex. He is a regular guest of the Orchestre Colonne for thematic concerts.


He is interested in Anglo-Saxon musicals, and has been musical director for Fame, Un violon sur le toit, Rendez-vous, West Side Story, Next thing you know, Cérémonies des Marius, Oliver, Fantasmes de demoiselles, and Into the woods, touring the opera houses of France (Massy, Reims, Toulon, etc.). 


His dual musical and theatrical training has enabled him to stage operas (Tosca, Orphée et Eurydice, Paillasse, ...), musical theater creations (Contes sans frontières, Festival Ville en lumières de la ville de Troyes, Légendes parisiennes, #hashtags, Flop, Jack l'éventreur de Whitechapel, Un chant de Noël, Contre-temps, ...) and plays such as La leçon Ionesco at the Mouffetard and Lucernaire theaters, and Anna attend l'amour at the Mathurins theater. ) In 2018, he created Comédiens! at the Théâtre de la Huchette, then L'homme de Schrödinger at the Artistic Théâtre the following year, for which he won the Trophées de la Comédie Musicale for best author and best director two years running.


As a composer, he received support from the SACD's Fonds de Création Lyrique for his opera Le dernier jour and wrote the arrangements of Wagner's Flying Dutchman published by Universal/Ricordi, as well as Mozart's Don Giovanni for the Nouvelle Troupe Lyrique. He composed the music for the ballet Derviche mon amour and the incidental music for several plays, including Roméo et Juliette and Dom Juan by Cie Chouchenko.


The coronavirus crisis pushes him off the beaten track, and he directs the very first French virtual choir, The Show Must Go On, seen over ten million times on media and networks worldwide. He created C-o-n-t-a-c-t, a distanced 2.0 theatrical experience, which was exported in several languages and a dozen countries, including London, Roma and Toronto. He directed The Cyber-Magic Flute at the Opéra de Vichy, a hyperconnected show using all the new video, streaming and videoconferencing technologies.
