ABOUT TARA: 

Stage director Tara Faircloth’s work has been seen in opera houses around the nation. Critics hailed her “incisive, tightly meshed direction” (Opera News) for The Rake's Progress at Wolf Trap Opera, calling it “a simple and elegant production” (The Washington Post). She has directed two world premieres with the Houston Grand Opera and has a thriving career with more standard material in regional houses such as Utah Opera, Arizona Opera, Tulsa Opera and Opera Colorado (Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Rigoletto, Die Zauberflöte, Hänsel & Gretel, etc.). The baroque repertoire is of special interest to Ms. Faircloth, who made her directorial debut with Ars Lyrica Houston’s production of Cain: Il primo omicidio in 2003, and has since designed and directed a number of shows in this genre, including a Dido & Aeneas with Mercury Baroque and the Dominic Walsh Dance Theater. Ms. Faircloth has served on directing staff of such companies as Lyric Opera of Chicago, Central City Opera, and Houston Grand Opera, and as such, has worked on some of the most complicated operas in the repertoire. She is a dramatic coach for the Houston Grand Opera Studio and has a private coaching studio in Houston, Texas. Next season she returns to direct a new productions of Carmen at Wolf Trap Opera, Eugene Onegin at Arizona Opera, and will make two company debuts: Fidelio at Madison Opera and Le Nozze di Figaro at Atlanta Opera.
