For more than 40 years, Dr. David DiChiera has been Detroit's champion of opera in the city.
Now, meet Sam White. The Detroit native had a dream of starting her own theater company and has been working tirelessly to get Shakespeare in Detroit off the ground for the past couple years.
Both are visionary and inspiring Detroiters who share a lot of common experiences. So, in honor of DiChiera’s 80th birthday and an upcoming celebration of his work during Art X Detroit, we decided that rather than interview DiChiera ourselves, we would have him sit down with White.
