Stage Director Alison Moritz’s recent productions have been lauded as “astute,” “imaginative,” and “elegantly sexy” by Opera News, and she is quickly garnering a reputation for incisive takes on contemporary American operas and innovative interpretations of the classic repertoire.
Alison’s 2018-2019 season includes company debuts at Opera Colorado (La Traviata), Lyric Opera of Kansas City (Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Penelope), Ravinia, and Experiments in Opera. She returns to Washington National Opera for the world premiere of Taking Up Serpents (composed by Kamala Sankaram, libretto by Jerre Dye) and to New Orleans Opera for a new production of Abduction from the Seraglio. Later this season, Alison also directs productions of La Bohème (Austin Opera), and Madama Butterfly (Central City Opera).
