Dallas Opera Names Interim General Director & CEO

The Dallas Opera has announced the appointment of an interim General Director and CEO.

The company announced that longtime Dallas Opera Board member, Executive Committee member, and former Board Chairman Kern Wildenthal would be the interim General Director and CEO of the company. He will serve in a volunteer capacity, with no compensation, until a permanent general director is appointed.

Wildenthal has been a loyal supporter of the company for many years. In a press release Board Chairman Holly Mayer said, “I have always had the highest regard for Kern Wildenthal’s ability to apply his wide-ranging experience and leadership skills to The Dallas Opera, We are so fortunate that he has agreed to assume the responsibility to steer the company through this transitional time.”

Earlier in December, the Dallas Opera announced that General Director and CEO Keith Cerny would resign from the Dallas Opera because he had been appointed as General Director and CEO of Calgary Opera.

The Dallas Opera will next present Korngold’s “The Ring of Polykrates” in February and ends its 2017-18 season in April with Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” starring Mariusz Kwiecien, David Portillo, and Nino Machaidze.
