Atlanta Opera General Director Resigns

Dennis Hanthorn, Zurich General Director of the Atlanta Opera since 2004, resigned from his position last week.  From my vantage point the opera has had many successes under his leadership – including a strategic move to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre –  and has mounted some very fine productions.  Highlights for me?  Orfeo with David Daniels, La Cenerentola with Jennifer Larmore, and a fabulous production of Cold Sassy Tree with Carlisle Floyd in the audience.
