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. 

Working to address a long-standing career issue in the opera world, The Dallas Opera in 2015 launched a unique, new residential program—one of only three in the world—designed to provide training and career support for distinctively talented women conductors.  Female conductors, as well as accomplished women singers, opera coaches, accompanists, and instrumentalists with established careers seeking to develop new skills at the podium, were encouraged to apply.

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)

Other nations that were represented in this year’s applicant pool were from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, and Mexico; as well as New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, Ukraine, and Venezuela.
