Lotfi Mansouri

Our dear friend Lotfi Mansouri is about to be honored next month by the NEA for his contributions to the world of opera. The reason? There are many but this one is for his introduction of super/sur-titles to opera performances - those handy real time translations of what is being sung onstage.

San Francisco Classical Voice reports the Mr. Mansouri received another honor this week - an unveiling of a bas relief plaque at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco where he was General Director from 1988-2001.


Lotfi returns to us next season to direct Nabucco.
