It’s over in Hannover for enterprising music directormain
Karen Kamensek, busy music director at the Hannover State Opera has decided not to renew her five-year contract beyond 2016. Too much going on elsewhere in her career, apparently.
Karen, Chicago born, has made her way up the German ladder over the past decade from first kapellmeister at Vienna’s Volksoper to music director in Freiburg, deputy in Hamburg and, from 2011, #1 in Hannover. But US opera companies have awoken to her abilities and Karen is keen to be up, up and away.
