The Dallas Opera will present the six distinguished professionals selected to participate in the third annual residency of the Linda and Mitch Hart Institute for Women Conductors in two public concerts. The concerts 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 a 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, Colombia, France, Poland, and the U.S. to take part in this year’s Hart Institute.
