Title: Music Director/Principal Conductor, Lyric Opera Responsibility: In addition to his Lyric duties (which he has held since 2000), Davis added the position of Chief Conductor for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra to his résumé in January '13. Favorite Lyric Performances: Davis loves Wagner, particularly Parsifal (which the Lyric presented last fall), but also notes, "I'm very proud of the Mozart record in this house. We've done most of the productions." In March, Davis takes the podium for Sir David McVicar's celebrated staging of Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito—the first Lyric production of the opera in 25 years. Vision for the Future: "I am very positive about the future of opera. My wife [Gianna Rolandi, former director of the Lyric's Ryan Opera Center] says, 'Well, it will probably last our lifetime.'" 104 PHOTOGRAPHY BY ERIC RADEMACHER Sir Andrew Davis MICHIGANAVEMAG.COM 104-109_MA_FEAT_Opera_Winter_14 104 1/9/14 5:09 PM
