Though this article about Mortier’s next move is short, it’s worth a little scan! Looks like Gerard Mortier, after ditching out on New York City Opera, is off to Madrid and the Teatro Real. He will be taking over for both artistic director Antonio Moral and music director, Jesus Lopez-Cobos, formerly of the Cincinnati Symphony. This continues in his trend of having to be completely in charge, considering he fired the Executive Director while he was still going to City Opera because he didn’t need one of those, either. Staff at Teatro Madrid… WATCH OUT!
