Across the Board - Fall/Winter 2023

The articles featured here appear in the Fall/Winter 2023 issue of Across the Board, a publication of OPERA America for opera company trustees.

From OPERA America's President and CEO:

I’m still amazed by the perseverance and innovation of our industry through the pandemic. While it feels like we’ve turned a corner as a society, the challenges of producing opera have only shifted.

At our Opera Conference in Pittsburgh this spring, we looked at those challenges — and opportunities! — through the lens of the people who work in our industry. If you haven’t watched the session videos, I encourage you to view them in Industry Resources.

At our upcoming National Trustee Forum in January and at Opera Conference 2024 in Los Angeles, we’ll continue to make sense of the lingering uncertainty in our field. Our LA meeting will take a global focus, too, as we convene the second World Opera Forum with delegates from around the world.

The best thing you can do right now as a trustee is to stay informed. I hope you’ll join us for one or more of these upcoming events.
