Director Amy Hutchison stages "wildly imaginative" opera and theater productions throughout the US and worldwide, including William Bolcom’s A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE (Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, Washington National Opera, Portland Opera); HANSEL & GRETEL (Opernhaus Zürich, Canadian Opera Company, The Juilliard School, televised Live from Lincoln Center); PORGY AND BESS (Milan, Paris, Tokyo, Düsseldorf, Venice); CARMEN (Kansas City, Milwaukee, Columbus), AS ONE (Chicago, Santa Barbara, San Antonio, Pensacola, Duluth); TURANDOT (Orlando), LA TRAVIATA (Costa Mesa), DON PASQUALE (Indianapolis), and many more. 

Amy's exhuberant work has been hailed as “an opera lover’s dreams on a golden platter," from Verdi’s swashbuckling epic IL CORSARO for Opera Festival of Chicago to her “brilliantly mounted double bill" of Donizetti's IL PIGMAGLIONE & RITA for Chicago Opera Theater. Hutchison’s historic production of William Grant Still’s epic masterwork TROUBLED ISLAND for South Shore Opera Company of Chicago was named the number one classical music event of the year by the Chicago Sun-Times. As a director for Chicago Opera Theatre’s Vanguard Initiative, Amy has acted as a critical partner in the development of new operas. She frequently collaborates with Chicago Fringe Opera, Folks Operetta, and companies throughout Chicagoland. 

Amy has served on the directing staffs of Lyric Opera of Chicago and Houston Grand Opera. She currently teaches at DePaul University and Roosevelt University, and has taught and directed at esteemed opera programs including Indiana University, Boston University, Northwestern University, and Westminster Choir College.
