Is Texas falling to piecesmain
First Dallas Symphony loses its COO, Paul Stewart. No comment all round.
Two weeks later the incoming chief executive, Bill Lively, quits. Health problems, apparently.
Today the music director of the Dallas Opera, Graeme Jenkins, resigns unexpectedly. He says he’s too busy elsewhere. Hmmm.
Just a little local difficulty?
Well, over in Houston, the general director of the opera, Anthony Freud, has upgraded to Chicago.
And in Austin today the director of the Lyric Opera Kevin Patterson has quit, leaving a million-buck hole in the budget.
What the heck’s going on down in musical Texas?
