Beth Greenberg is renowned for her work with the New York City Opera. For the Lincoln Center company she directed original mainstage productions of Turandot and Tales of Hoffmann and many revivals of classics. Across New York's harbor, aboard an historic ship moored in Red Hook, Brooklyn, she directed the site-specific production of Il Tabarro which received international acclaim.
Greenberg has earned a solid reputation for her collaborations with living composers,
working on all phases of a new show's development from first libretto reads to fully-staged premieres. Recent world-premieres include The Scarlet Letter (Laitman & Mason), The Three Feathers (Laitman & Gioia) and The Red Silk Thread (Sung & Hilbert). Current operas-in-development include The Rat Land (Beeferman & Jackson), Harriet Tubman (Okoye), and Steal a Pencil for Me (Cohen & Brevoort).
Her other original productions have been seen worldwide with Carmen in Tokyo and Tosca in Lima. In America she has staged works for Crested Butte, Phoenicia Voice Fest, Utah Festival Opera, Pittsburgh Opera Center, Opera Delaware and the Asheville Lyric.
A Fulbright award brought Beth Greenberg to Germany where she apprenticed with Gotz Friedrich at Berlin's Deutsche Oper.
Beth Greenberg is also a Mentor at the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation in New York, and at the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership.
She is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music and Brooklyn College.
