Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “LA’s avant-garde opera darling,” Yuval SHARON has been creating an unconventional body of work that seeks to expand the operatic form. He founded and serves as Artistic Director of The Industry in Los Angeles, directing and producing the company’s acclaimed world premieres of Hopscotch, Crescent City, Invisible Cities, and In C.
Starting with the 2016-17 season, Yuval will serve as an artist-collaborator for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where his projects will include newly commissioned works, site-specific installations, and performances outside the hall. Upcoming projects include Die Walküre for Staatstheater Karlsruhe, Pelleas et Melisande for Cleveland Orchestra, Lou Harrison’s Young Caesar with the LA Philharmonic, and a new interpretation of Brecht’s Galileo with music by Andy Akiho for The Industry. He serves on the board of Opera America, the Artist Council for the Hammer Museum, and as a Fellow for the LA Institute for Humanities.
