Last year I was so excited to announce that my great team of designers and I were selected as finalists for the Robert L. B. Tobin Director-Designer Prize. Of course, because of Covid, Opera America delayed the in-person conference for an additional year. BUT...we are finally heading to Minneapolis next week to share our work on L'elisir d'amore. If you're in town for the conference, please stop by booth 18 or look for me and our team during the event. We will be presenting with the other finalists Thursday, May 19 in the Great Lakes Ballroom from 12:30-2 pm. You can also visit our updated web page on this site by clicking here.
