China National Opera has named Yang Yang, 43, as its next music director.

He succeeds Yu Feng, who is now Rector of the Central Conservatory of Music.

    There must be an error somewhere. How is that the politically connected Yu Long failed to get this post to add to those as Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the country’s THREE main symphony orchestras, the Beijing Music Festival and Principal Guest with Jaap van Zweden’s Hong Kong Philharmonic?
