Opera Theatre of Saint Louis launches a four-part series this fall exploring questions of representation and equity in the arts, entertainment, and media. Events continue through June 2019, including conversations about casting, film and television, the music industry, and the media. All events are free, but advance registration through the OTSL box office is heavily encouraged. Q&A and informal reception to follow.
For the first program in the series, we explore the question of casting in opera and theatre, both locally and nationally. The conversation will be moderated by Adrienne Davis, Vice Provost and William M. Van Cleve Professor of Law at Washington University. Panelists include Soprano Julia Bullock, actor and educator Duane Foster, Christina Rios, Artistic Director of R-S Theatrics, and Opera Theatre General Director Andrew Jorgenson.
