Hubert Deutsch, hired in 1955 as  Korrepetitor, rose to become archive director and deputy head of the company.

Hubert died at the weekend aged 93. The Staatsoper is flying a black flag as a mark of honour.

    When getting to know Deutsch in the 1970s I found him a kind, thoughtful and deeply experienced part of the Staatsoper team, easily spotted in the company box by his striking (and light-catching) shiny head. Always a welcome sight.

    I am glad to hear he made it to a good age. RIP
