Exclusive: Munich’s next casting director comes from … Dallasmain
Message from our pals at The Dallas Opera:
I have bittersweet news to share with you regarding David Lomeli. It is with great pride that I can now announce that David has accepted the position of Casting Director for the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, one the most revered companies in the world that has seen the world premieres of Mozart’s Idomeneo, Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, Das Rheingold, Die Walküre and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and Korngold’s The Ring of Polykrates to name a few.
David will officially begin in Munich in the summer of 2021, but will serve as casting consultant for them in the upcoming year. David will continue his current role with TDO through March 2021, at which point he will transition to casting consultant for TDO while moving permanently to Munich.
As you know, David is the first Hispanic to occupy a top casting position at a major opera house in the U.S. and the first manager of our Hart Institute for Women Conductors – both incredible points of pride for our company. Please join me in congratulating him and I look forward to celebrating his transition in the year to come.
David Lomeli, Director of Artistic Administration at The Dallas Opera
