Mrs Gelb breaks glass ceiling at Tokyo Operamain
Keri-Lynn Wilson, the Canadian-born conductor who is married to the Metropolitan Opera manager, is about to become the first woman to conduct an opera at Tokyo’s New National Theatre.
Japan is not quite up to the pace in gender equality.
The opera Wilson is conducting is Madam Butterfly. Women today, she tells an interviewer, ‘generally do not sacrifice their lives to a man in the same way.’
