As stewards of the art form, opera leaders have the opportunity to foster important discussions and build understanding through the works they produce. With equity, diversity and inclusion in mind, this session explores issues around cultural sensitivity and the production of new works and traditional repertoire, including season planning, casting and community engagement strategies. At every stage of producing, there are opportunities for important internal and community considerations. Join a conversation and hear examples from the field.
