Pierre Audi’s successor as head of Dutch National Opera will be Sophie De Lint, an operator who has kept her head well below the parapet until now.
Rotterdam born, she was raised in Switzerland and worked as an artist manager from 2002 to 2009. Since 2012 she has been artistic director at Zurich Opera.
She has no online profile but is well known within the industry.
She succeeds Pierre Audi on September 1, 2018.
