Appointed as Guest Concertmaster and Guest Conductor for the Dallas’ Opera landmark 2015-2016 Season.

Peter has “admired the transformation of The Dallas Opera over the last five years, and its commitment to the highest possible artistic standards under the leadership of Keith Cerny and Emmanuel Villaume. They have begun creating something exceptional, looking beyond the walls of the opera house.”

Said Dallas Opera CEO, Keith Cerny: “In keeping with our mission to bring the world’s most talented artists and performers to North Texas, it is a special thrill to invite Mr. Manning to add his legendary talents as a concertmaster and conductor to the upcoming season.  It will be a delight to bring him to Dallas to be part of the opera ‘family’, and we are already making special plans for his residency.”

Peter will assume the role of concertmaster and conductor from October 2015.

“His incredible depth of knowledge of the operatic repertoire, his personal leadership skills, his knowledge of opera singers, and his truly remarkable violin playing make him someone I relish working with.”
