DETROIT – Fans of Detroit’s historic Michigan Opera Theatre are welcoming a new artistic director.
In the house that Dr. David DiChiera built, there has always been grandeur and risk. Just building the Opera House and the Michigan Opera Theatre Company was a risk, but it paid off for Detroit.
His passing is a wound that may never heal for everyone who loves and respects music, theatre and arts, but Wednesday is a big step in soothing that hurt with the announcement of a new, young, vibrant and ridiculously creative artistic director.
Yuval Sharon is an international presence in theatre, known as a visionary and a rock star in opera and theatre circles. Now, he’s calling Detroit, specifically the Detroit Opera House, home.
