Beginning in 2017, and for the next six years, TDO will invite between two and four American opera administrators to join the program each season. These women will be selected on the basis of their potential to become the leader of one of America’s top opera companies later in their careers.
The selected opera administrators will attend all sessions during the annual residency in Dallas on November 5-18, 2018. This curriculum includes the role of the Board, leadership development, personal branding, media and PR training, effective artist management, and navigating recruiting processes for senior level positions. To continue to develop their musical skills, which is essential for any opera executive, the administrators will observe rehearsals with The Dallas Opera Orchestra and conducting master classes. Special sessions on Marketing, Development, and Finance will also be offered to these administrators.
The Dallas Opera is encouraging women of various backgrounds to apply. In addition to women currently working as opera administrators, applications are being accepted from women working in other arts organizations, as well as performers, directors, designers, choreographers, and composers looking to make a transition into line management.
