General and Artistic Director of The Atlanta Opera since 2013, Tomer Zvulun previously directed The Flying Dutchman (2018) and Rigoletto (2019) for HGO. His work has been presented by prestigious opera houses in Europe, South and Central America, Israel, and the U.S.; the festivals of Wexford, Glimmerglass, and Wolf Trap; and leading educational institutes and universities such as The Juilliard School, Indiana University, and Boston University. Zvulun spent seven seasons on the directing staff of the Metropolitan Opera where he directed revivals of Carmen and Tosca and was involved with more than a dozen new productions. His European premiere of Silent Night at the Wexford Festival received two Irish Times Awards and traveled from Ireland to Washington National Opera, The Glimmerglass Festival, and the opera companies of Atlanta, Austin, and Salt Lake City. Zvulun directed over 15 new productions in his home company in Atlanta, including Dead Man Walking, The Flying Dutchman, Soldier Songs, Silent Night, María de Buenos Aires, La bohème, Madame Butterfly, Lucia di Lammermoor, The Magic Flute, and Eugene Onegin. During Zvulun’s tenure, the company’s fundraising has tripled, resulting in twice the number of productions presented annually. His focus on innovation has garnered national attention and resulted in a Harvard Business School case study chronicling The Atlanta Opera’s turnaround, an International Opera Awards nomination, an ArtsATL Luminary Award, and an invitation to deliver a Ted Talk. His upcoming projects include a new production of The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs for five companies in the U.S. and Canada, Rigoletto in Dallas, Utah and Atlanta, and a new Rheingold in Dallas and Atlanta.
