The Czech conductor Tomás Netopil will step in for Franz Welser-Möst in Janácek’s Cunning Little Vixen in November.  He made an impressive debut last season in Dvorák’s Rusalka.

Patrick Lange, a young German conductor, takes over the New Year performances of Fledermaus.

    Good news. I heard Rusalka in Dresden under Netopil in 2011. Absolutely marvelous. It will do Vienna good to have young talents in the pit. Who knows, we may witness major international careers being made at the Stastsoper. When one door closes, another opens up. Good.
