Artistic Staff and Faculty

For 3 months every summer, industry-leading conductors, directors, designers, production managers, artistic directors, coaches, and guest faculty gather at Wolf Trap to make great opera and mentor up-and-coming singers.

A core value of Wolf Trap Opera is to provide a noteworthy artistic experience for our artists to further their career growth, their knowledge of the industry, and the totality of their abilities. Throughout the Pandemic, Wolf Trap Opera has remained committed to providing opportunities that both challenge and engage our artists. Summer 2022 will look more “normal”, and we look forward to bringing this summer’s amazing artists to our audiences.


Our 2023 Guest Faculty are currently being confirmed: check this space for updates!
