The Challenges of Opera Direction is an investigation of the art of the opera stage director. In addition to a brief history of opera, the investigation includes opinions of leading international directors. Furthermore it details directing techniques and examples gleaned from the direction of Mozart's The Impresario (Der Shauspieldirektor) and Donizetti's The Elixir of Love (L'elisir d'amore) both at UNLV and an assistant directing internship with Seattle Opera's production of Delibes's Lakme. Also included are chapters on the art of collaborating with conductors, designers and performers.
