We hear that Tom Nelson, head of Audience Labs at the Royal Opera House, has gone to work in an unspecified role at the Royal Opera House of Muscat, in Oman.
Tom’s role at Covent Garden opera was free-ranging. He was tasked ‘to experiment and innovate with new technologies to build new audiences.’
In Oman, he’ll first have to get out and find an audience.
At least he won’t need to wear black tie.
