Ned tries to convince you that despite your preconceived notions about opera, it's an amazingly beautiful art form, and you should give it a try.
Ned Canty is the General Director at Opera Memphis and has over 20 years of experience as an opera stage director. As a freelance artist for 20 years, Canty directed operas at dozens of companies in the US, Italy, Israel, China and Canada. The New York Times described his work as having "a startling combination of sensitivity and panache.”
