Christopher Alden

Conversations

Christopher Alden is a renowned stage director. Theatre was part of his home life but opera was not. The first opera he staged was Poulenc’s Les Mamelles de Tirésias in 1974 in New York. He now directs at major theatres in the USA and in Europe.

He speaks with Marc Scorca, President of Opera America, of how he approaches each work knowing to what audience it will be playing.
