In March 2017, as part of the Baden-Baden Festival, he worked with Sir Simon Rattle as the répétiteur for a production of Tosca, and he also served as Teodor Currentzis’s assistant in La bohème in the autumn of that same year.
Between 2015 and 2018, Török worked as a conductor/répétiteur at Theater Regensburg, where he conducted numerous premieres that he rehearsed himself (including Künneke’s Der Vetter aus Dingsda and various ballet and children’s productions) and several hundred repertoire performances of such pieces as Un ballo in maschera, La Cenerentola and Così fan tutte.
