Yuval Sharon

Founder and Artistic Director, The Industry

Yuval Sharon is founder and artistic director of The Industry, a company devoted to new and experimental opera that has brought opera into moving vehicles, operating train stations, and other nontraditional spaces. He conceived, directed, and produced the company’s world premieres of Sweet Land, Hopscotch, Invisible Cities, and Crescent City. In 2018, Sharon became the first American director at the Bayreuther Festspiele with his production of Lohengrin. From 2016 to 2019, he was the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s first artist in residence, creating nine projects including a revival of Meredith Monk’s opera Atlas. Sharon was honored with a 2017 MacArthur Fellowship and a Foundation for Contemporary Art grant for theater. The New York Times described him as “opera’s disrupter in residence.”
