Aspen Institute Leadership Series: Julie Taymor and Michael Eisner

Tony Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated director Julie Taymor joined Michael Eisner, President and CEO, The Tornante Company, for the Aspen Institute’s October 23 Leadership Series in memory of Preston Robert Tisch. Taymor spoke about her creative process and the layers that go into directing exquisite and imaginative productions ranging from plays to operas and film. Taymor and Eisner engaged in a lively discussion about their experience working on productions together such as The Lion King, Frida and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.  The event took place at Hunter College’s Roosevelt House, and is part of the Leadership Series sponsored by Steve Tisch, Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch, and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
