"The qualities that make Dean Anthony such an exceptionally fine director are the same ones that make him an inspiring teacher; intellect, imagination, daring, generosity, collegiality, inexhaustible energy, a natural drama in his own speech and his bearing, and a remarkable ability to see the theatrical possibilities in so many quiet and unassuming things. What makes him one of a kind is the warmth and human connection that he brings to every interaction. Count me in that large and growing number that consider him a treasure in the world of opera."
Enjoying a comprehensive 30-plus year career as a stage performer, stage director, educator, and producer, Dean Anthony draws from an exceptional knowledge of the operatic repertoire from all facets of the industry.
