E. Loren Meeker


The American director has a busy 2017/18 season planned, highlighted by productions at Atlanta Opera (The Daughter of the Regiment), Seattle Opera (Aida), and The Glimmerglass Festival (The Cunning Little Vixen). Other recent directing credits include Die Fledermaus (San Francisco), Carmen (Washington National Opera), Rossini’s rarely heard La pietra del paragone (Wolf Trap Opera), La bohème (Glimmerglass, San Diego), Manon (Dallas), Faust and Lucia di Lammermoor (New Orleans), The Barber of Seville (Opera San Antonio), Madama Butterfly (North Carolina), and Franco Faccio’s newly reconstructed Amleto (OperaDelaware). Meeker’s work has been seen internationally in Candide (Toulouse, Bordeaux), Manon Lescaut (Singapore), and Manon (Buenos Aires). She also has a love for new works, having directed numerous world premieres for Houston Grand Opera’s HGOco and most recently for Lyric Unlimited (Jason and the Argonauts). Meeker has served on the directing staffs at many of America’s top companies, including Lyric, Houston Grand Opera, San Diego Opera, and Central City Opera (where she received the 2006 John Moriarty Award). Her choreography has been seen at Central City (Vanessa), Glimmerglass (Orpheus in the Underworld), Houston (The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni), Boston Lyric Opera (Rigoletto, Die Fledermaus) and Opera Boston (La Vie Parisienne).
