Four of opera’s most brilliant young conductors are front and center for an evening of opera selections, sung by some of the country’s top singers and featuring The Dallas Opera Orchestra.
TDO’s Hart Institute, launched in 2015, is the only program of its kind in the world and seeks to address the extreme gender imbalance of leadership on the podium in opera companies. Now in its seventh year, more than 500 women conductors from 40 nations have applied to be trained, advised, and supported by this extraordinary initiative. This concert is the grand finale of an intensive two-week residency, which includes working with some of today’s most renowned maestri. Read more about the Hart Institute here.
The culmination of each season’s program is a festive Showcase Concert where each participant conducts The Dallas Opera Orchestra and singers in a program of operatic favorites in the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House.
