Zambello Trades Opera For Musical Theatre

Francesca Zambello is one of the top opera directors. But Zambello has decided the time is right to move from opera to musicals. “I’ve worked on a lot of world premieres in operas and found that it’s gratifying but frustrating because it doesn’t get done a lot. So I’ve started to shift quite recently into the musicals market, working with composers and lyricists. And ultimately I do want to work in my language.”
