Opera Theatre of St. Louis names new artistic director

James Robinson


St. Louis, MO – The Opera Theatre of St. Louis has named a new artistic director - James Robinson.

He succeeds Colin Graham, who died in April.

Robinson has been artistic director of Opera Colorado but he's already well-known among opera fans in St. Louis. He has directed five main-stage productions here, including last spring's "La Traviata."

Opera Theatre St. Louis also plans to add a new position, executive director. Timothy O'Leary will take on that role with the New Year. He's currently director of operations at New York City Opera.
