    [Opera Lively interview # 6]

    Originally from Louisville, KY, Maestro James Allbritten - also a professional tenor - began his operatic career with Kentucky Opera. While a student in Louisville, he was invited to participate as one of the youngest artists in the San Antonio Arts Festival, where he was apprenticed to Boris Goldovsky. His conducting studies began at Indiana University under Jan Harrington, Robert Porco, and Thomas Dunn. While there he also worked with Glyndebourne Festival Opera conductor Bryan Balkwill, and MET stage directors, Fritz Busch and James Lucas.

    He came to North Carolina in 1993 to join the faculty of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where his duties now include Artistic Director of the A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute in Winston-Salem, and Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of Piedmont Opera, the professional opera company headquartered in the same city.
