And likewise, directors who are new to opera benefit from working with the pros who can orient them to the peculiarities of the art form. Panelists in this session will discuss what they wish they had known before entering the opera house and how companies can effectively support directors making their operatic debut.

To be successful, opera artists must accumulate a staggering amount of knowledge and skills. Those who attempt to meet so many demands alone, particularly given the transient lifestyle of an opera career, will quickly find themselves overwhelmed.
