It has been announced in Tel Aviv that Dan Ettinger will replace Daniel Oren in Janury.
This is promising.
Ettinger, 46, is principal guest conductor with the Israel Symphony Orchestra, which operates as the Israel Opera’s pit band. His arrival coincides with the retirement of the Opera’s hard-hat chief executive Hanna Munitz and the start of a less defensive management style.
Ettinger was music director in Mannheim and is now at Stuttgart Philharmonic. He is experienced at working with accomplished singers.
