Opera Conference 2022 - Dynamics of a “Successful” Season

Planning a season in the current climate is more challenging than ever. What operas are appropriate for the main theater or alternative venues? What partnerships, public programs, and community conversations inform each production? Who from within and outside the company should participate in making these decisions?
