Welsh name untested music directormain
When Lothar Koengs finishes his term at the end of this season, his successor as music director of Welsh National Opera will be Tomáš Hanus.
The Czech, 45, has guest-conducted widely in Europe but he has only ever been music director of a company for two years, in Brno, and he has conducted the WNO orchestra just once – in a cathedral concert. Could be interesting.
(The agent is IMG Artists.)
UPDATE: IMG breakout agent Libby Abrahams reports Hanus is now with her boutique agency, Keynote.
