This is uncommon.

The Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu writes:

When a conductor is preparing an opera production he/she needs an assistant. Conducting assistants provide an extra pair of ears, they listen to the balance, observe the language and monitor the tempi. Best assistants also serve as messengers between the conductor and the rest of the team. Some assistants are also helpful when the conductor’s musical ideas get out of hand…
While building a new production of Pelléas et Mélisande at @bayerischestaatsoper I have had a pleasure to work with my pupil and colleague James S. Kahane. He has just become the Music Director of the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra in Canada and I’m sure he has a wonderful professional future ahead.
Premiere on July the 9th at the Münchner Opernfestpiele
