Leipzig opera falls way behind Dresdenmain
It’s hotting up in Saxony.
After the Semper Oper of Dresden turned in seasonal attendance figures of 91 percent, Leipzig Opera has responded today with returns of just 70 percent – and only 62% for opera itself. Ballet and concerts performed slightly better.
Leipzig Opera’s music director is Ulf Schirmer; the director of opera is Franziska Severin.
We hear the unmistakable rustle of socks being pulled up.
