Timothy Nelson, IN Series Artistic Director, “I love opera - not necessarily what it is all the time, but always what it has the potential to become. When a working group … gathered this past fall to reimagine the mission of IN Series … the word that came up most was transformation. That is why I love opera, because it can change people, artists, audiences, communities, and, I believe, the world."


Join Timothy as he explains how he transforms the "who," "what," and "why" of opera.  Who gets to make opera and for whom is it made; what is defined as an operatic experience; where operas take place; why we make opera, and why opera matters.


Timothy Nelson was named Artistic Director of IN Series in the Spring of 2018. Having founded and led American Opera Theater, he went on to maintain a career as director, designer, and conductor in Europe and North America, serving as Artistic Director for the Netherlands Opera Studio and the Nieuwe Stemmen program of the Rotterdam Operadagen, and creating productions for London’s Barbican, English Touring Opera, the Nationale Reisopera, Academy of Ancient Music, Iford Arts Festival, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and others. He has been called by the New York Times “The Future of Opera.”
