Young Brit opera hires Euro expertmain
Mahogany Opera, founded two years ago and specialising in contemporary work, has appointed Ivan van Kalmthout as chief executive.
Ivan, who is Dutch, was recently interim Artistic Director at the Liceu in Barcelona. Before that, he worked at Vlaamse Opera, Hamburg Staatsoper and Berlin Staatsoper.
This kind of cross-channel hiring has been placed in jeopardy by Brexit.
