Vincent La Selva

Conductor, and founder of the New York Grand Opera -- via the New York Times. Motivated by an abiding passion, he created a true (and shoestring) "people's opera" that really reached out to the public in ways better-funded operatic entities might learn from. The first conductor to lead a troupe through all of Verdi's operas, in chronological order.
