Israel Opera chief steps downmain
Hanna Munitz has announced her retirement after 21 years as chief executive.
She kept the company running but was unpopular with artists, especially conductors, some of whom she fired with extreme acrimony. She lacked charm and was not renowned for gratitude.
Apparently 120 candidates applied for the vacancy the day it was advertised.
Munitz will depart in the summer of 2016.
