The Dallas Opera is proud to present the six distinguished professionals selected to participate in the third annual residency of the Linda and Mitch Hart Institute for Women Conductors at The Dallas Opera in two public concerts:
- Saturday, November 11th at 7:30 p.m. and
- Saturday, November 18th at 7:30 p.m.
Both, in the magnificent Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
General Admission seating is just $10 at these historic concerts, and is available now by contacting The Dallas Opera Ticket Office at 214.443.1000 or you may purchase online at dallasopera.org.
These two extraordinary evenings will consist of stirring overtures, interludes, and heartbreaking arias that crisscross time periods and geographical boundaries, performed by a stellar ensemble of young opera artists and The Dallas Opera Orchestra.
Most importantly, it will be an exceedingly rare opportunity to see six accomplished women conductors at the podium, sharing their interpretations of these much-loved works by Mozart, John Adams, Verdi, Joby Talbot, Handel, Mark Adamo, Puccini, Massenet, Jennifer Higdon, Bellini, Donizetti, Carlisle Floyd and more. The conductors have come to Dallas from Australia, Brazil, Columbia, France, Poland, and the U.S.A. to take part in this year’s Hart Institute.
A total of 161 women conductors and professional musicians answered the call in 2017 and applied by the April 30th deadline for the Institute, which will be reconvened from Nov. 5-19, 2017. This year’s participants are:
- Alba Bomfim (Brazil)
- Mélisse Brunet (France)
- Lina Gonzalez-Granados (USA/Colombia)
- Karin Hendrickson (USA)
- Carolyn Watson (USA/Australia)
- Monika Wolinska (Poland)
