Maazel's impresario goes to jail. Hope he got paid.main
by our Crime Correspondent
Garth Drabinsky, the dodgy organiser of this summer’s Black Creek festival in Toronto, began a jail sentence today after losing the last of a decade’s worth of appeals against a fraud conviction.
We warned here last month that all was not well at Black Creek and some singers were going without their supper. We also reported that Lorin Maazel was shuttling that weekend between two Beethoven Ninths in Tanglewood and Toronto. One got cancelled by a hurricane. I hope he and the London Symphony Orchestra got paid up-front for the other.
