Askonas Holt have scored a global management deal with out-of-the-box US opera director Yuval Sharon, aiming to extend his global profile.

Sharon, 38, will be the first American ever to direct at Bayreuth this summer.

He is about to attempt a staging of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the LA Phil.


  • Alexander says:

    his ears look a way like Ben Bland’s of BBC ones …. just to keep the talk ūüėČ

  • Cleveland music lover says:

    Sharon’s stagings for The Cunning Little Vixen and Pell√©as et M√©lisande in Cleveland were outstanding in every way. Breath of fresh air.
