Yuval Sharon

The Industry
Artistic Director
Los Angeles

Yuval Sharon has been creating an unconventional body of work exploring the interdisciplinary potential of opera. His productions have been described as “ingenious” (New York Times), “virtuosic” (Opernwelt), “dizzyingly spectacular” (New York Magazine), and “staggering” (Opera News). He is the recipient of the 2014 Götz Friedrich Prize in Germany for his acclaimed production of John Adams’ Doctor Atomic, originally produced at the Staatstheater Karlsruhe. Yuval founded and serves as Artistic Director of The Industry and directed the company’s productions of Crescent City, Invisible Cities, and In C. Yuval also directed a landmark production of John Cage’s Song Books at the San Francisco Symphony and Carnegie Hall with Joan La Barbara, Meredith Monk, and Jessye Norman. Yuval was Project Director for four years of New York City Opera’s VOX, an annual workshop of new American opera, which became the most important crucible for new opera in the country under his direction. He was assistant director to Achim Freyer on the Los Angeles Ring Cycle and Associate Director of the world premiere of Stockhausen’s Mittwoch aus Licht with Graham Vick for the London 2012 Cultural Olympics. Upcoming projects include Three Sisters for the Vienna Staatsoper, Die Walküre for Staatstheater Karlsruhe, and many future projects for The Industry.
