Lord Appointed Artistic Director of Opera Studies at New England Conservatory
In a major initiative to enhance opera and vocal studies at New England Conservatory, President Tony Woodcock has announced new leadership to guide both undergraduate and graduate opera programs. Conductor Stephen Lord, whom Opera News has identified as among the "25 most powerful names in U.S. opera," will become Artistic Director of Opera Studies. Former music director of Boston Lyric Opera, current music director of Opera Theatre of St. Louis, and a much-in-demand guest conductor at companies like English National Opera, San Francisco Opera and (Lyric Opera of Chicago), Lord will oversee all aspects of the opera training program and, beginning in 2011-12, conduct one mainstage production a year.
