On this episode of the podcast, meet the stage director of the one-acts Gallantry and Cabildo. Alison Moritz is back this season after assistant directing Tosca last summer, and she talks about her concepts for both these pieces. She also shares how she got into directing and what she’s dying to direct next, and why Williams Stables in Central City is the perfect venue for these operas, especially Amy Beach’s Cabildo. Alison is also the assistant director for Cosi fan tutte as well as the director for several of the Short Works opera scenes.
