British-born Matthew Shilvock will become the next General Director of the San Francisco Opera in late summer 2016. Shilvock will have to master many tasks in his new job, including artistic planning, fundraising and the myriad other tasks it takes to run an opera company. We'll ask him about how he intends to grow the Opera's audience, his strategies for tapping into the city's well-heeled tech workers and his plans for the 38,000 square foot Diana B. Wilsey Center for Opera that opens early next year.
