WNO: new music director
In Tuesday's Washington Post: Philippe Auguin takes over as the new music director of the Washington National Opera, by Anne Midgette.
Still no general director, or any clarity about whether a merger with the Kennedy Center will happen or not. But by gum they've got a good music director.
Edited to add: I should make clear, since there has been some confusion, that Mo. Auguin is replacing Heinz Fricke. There is still no replacement in sight for the company's outgoing general director, Plácido Domingo.
