Local soprano is new boss at Fort Worth OperaNews
The sun barely set in Texas before they rounded up another steer else to run the troubled opera company.
Afton Battle, the first African-American to run a major opera, quit just three weeks ago.
Her replacement is Angela Turner Wilson, 51, Fort Worth-based soprano and Texas Christian University’s chair of the vocal arts division.
“We were looking for strong leadership, performance experience on a national scale and someone who knows how to manage and grow an important arts organization,” said Fort Worth Opera Board Vice Chairman Hayne Shumate.
