In June, 37 years old Israeli stage director Tomer Zvulun will become the Atlanta Opera’s new general and artistic director. Zvulun has earned a lot of praise for his creative vision and work in prestigious opera houses worldwide, including the Metropolitan Opera, and the opera companies of Seattle, Cleveland, Dallas, Cincinnati, Buenos Aires, Wolf Trap and more. Zvulun, an Israeli native, will manage both the artistic and administrative aspects of The Atlanta Opera. Zvulun is already familiar to Atlanta Opera audiences having previously directed productions of The Flying Dutchman, The Magic Flute, and, most recently, Lucia di Lammermoor. He is expected to direct up to two Atlanta Opera productions each season. He also will remain active as a stage director with other opera companies.
