Christoph Groszer, wake-up intendant of the Zurich Opera from 1986-1991, has died aged 89.
Hamburg born, he ran the opera houses in Tübingen, St. Gallen, Braunschweig and Wiesbaden before leaving a legacy in the underpowered Swiss city. Before retirement, he groomed Alexander Pereira as his successor.
