Former Associate Conductor/Chorusmaster Adam Turner returns to Central City Opera as Principal Conductor of Carmen. On this episode, Adam talks about how he’s looking forward to his first Carmen as principal conductor after assisting on many other productions. He tells us what he thinks we should listen for and why Carmen is one of those operas that will never fade from the repertoire. Adam also describes his main gig at Virginia Opera and shares how he got started in conducting, how he thinks opera companies can adapt and keep moving forward, and why he’s become addicted to long distance running after Central City Opera’s music director took him on a run in Idaho Springs 6 years ago.
