Opera Theatre of Saint Louis Receives Major Gift For Technology

Timothy O'Leary, General Director
"Opera Theatre of Saint Louis said Monday it received a $350,000 gift from Emerson to establish the Emerson Technology & Production Training Center at the Sally S. Levy Opera Center. The center will include a state-of-the-art digital media lab enabling students, interns and leading professionals to master new technologies in video and lighting design, video projection and scenic automation. The center will also incorporate an adjacent rehearsal hall, allowing production artists to instantly transfer technology applications to a rehearsal setting. The new technology center completes the Sally S. Levy Opera Center, which was conceived under the leadership of former General Director Charles MacKay and made possible by the $11 million Building for Opera campaign, opera officials said. Timothy O'Leary is the opera's general director." [Source]
