Dear MOT Supporters:
Today, we announce the appointment of Yuval Sharon as the first Gary L. Wasserman Artistic Director!
“We are delighted to welcome Yuval Sharon as our newly appointed Artistic Director of MOT. He brings a remarkable perspective, curiosity, and artistic aesthetic that will be of enormous benefit to our organization and to the community. Recognized throughout the world for his distinctive, bold and compelling opera productions, Yuval will mount fresh and engaging works on our stage, ranging from the Masterworks of the repertoire to new opera works reflective of our times.”
-Wayne S. Brown, President and CEO
“Yuval’s appointment as Artistic Director of MOT could not come at a more opportune time. In the midst of this pandemic, when full use of our wonderful house is not possible, Yuval is uniquely positioned to stage performances in non-traditional spaces. This has the added benefit of making opera and dance more accessible to a wider Detroit community. Expanding upon MOT’s nationally recognized history of equity and inclusion, Yuval will bring his dedication to including more diverse voices and perspectives to our productions. I am anxious to see us engage our artistic voice in more communal conversations under Yuval’s leadership.”
-Ethan Davidson, Board Chair

Two years ago, September 18, 2018, Michigan Opera Theatre bade farewell to its beloved founder, David DiChiera. There is nothing that can be said about David that hasn’t already been said. He was one-of-a-kind, a true leader and impresario, a composer, a creator, a visionary genius, a big-hearted, hard-working, dedicated advocate of opera and dance. David loved Detroit, and the role he played in its renaissance with the creation of the spectacular Detroit Opera House is immeasurable. His vision and commitment were beyond extraordinary. Michigan Opera Theatre and Detroit Opera House patrons and supporters, whose steadfast support and commitment to the company mirrored his own, were dear to David.
