Will Humburg, 59, has told Darmstadt he’s leaving in 2018.

No reason given.

His predecessor, Constantin Trinks, did the same in 2012.

  • Una Barry says:

    Still got two years to go … hardly a term…

  • Hugh Jaarsse says:

    LOL the second half of the press article spells the guy’s name as “Humbug” – intentionally?
    The piece concludes by saying that predecessor GMD (general music director) Trinks didn’t get on with the Intendant (general artistic manager) apparently because each one refused to employ the other’s girlfriend as a singer.
    It doesn’t get more provincial than this.
