US opera goes all female at the top

Chicago Opera Theater has promoted Ashley Magnus to General Director.

She joins music director Lidiya Yankovskaya and board president Susan Irion in an all-woman regime, possibly a first in the opera world.

Magnus, formerly the COT’s chief fundraiser, succeeds outgoing general director Douglas Clayton.
