Mayhem as Bucharest replaces opera chief after four daysmain
Tiberiu-Ionuț Soare, named interim director general of Bucharest Opera this week, has been removed from the post.
He had plunged the ballet in turmoil by sacking its renowned Danish director Johan Kobborg.
The conductor Vlad Conta was named by the Culture Minister as the new interim director general of ONB, with Tiberiu Soare serving as his deputy.
There has been no response to Kobborg. This political intervention appears to solve nothing.
Kobborg’s wife Anlina Cojocaru is due to dance Macmillan’s Manon on Sunday. She had threatened to boycott the company unless her husband was reinstated.
