In Australia, the head of the Sydney Symphony is taking over at the Opera.

In Finland, it was announced today that the general manager of Helsinki Philharmonic, Gita Kadambi, will take over the Finnish National Opera in January 2018 when Päivi Kärkkäinen retires.

No wonder outsiders think that classical music is a closed shop.
