Just in: It’s curtains for the Vienna Operamain
Last night, the Staatsoper audience was exposed for the first time to the new safety curtain.
This is the 18th change of safety curtain. The new drape is by a French artist, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster.
Beyond the curtain, James Conlon made his belated conducting debut in the house, in Khovantschina.
