Seven of the opera world’s most brilliant young conductors will be front and center for an evening of opera favorites, sung by some of the country’s top young singers and featuring The Dallas Opera Orchestra.

TDO’s Hart Institute, launched in 2015, is the only program of its kind in the world and seeks to address the extreme gender imbalance of leadership on the podium in opera companies. Now in its sixth year, more than 500 women conductors from 40 nations have been trained, advised, and supported by this extraordinary initiative.

This concert is the grand finale of an intensive two-week residency, which includes working with some of today’s most renowned maestri. Opera managers from all over the world will be there to scout the leaders of tomorrow.
