Munich’s Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz has named Anthony Bramall as its next chief conductor, starting in summer 2017.
Bramall, 59, is deputy music director at Leipzig Opera.
His Munich predecessor, Marco Comin, is leaving abruptly in protest at a downmarket trend in repertoire. he said: ‘If a house wants to do a lot of operetta and musicals, it needs a chief who can do these well. That is not me.’
