The Semper Oper has named Omer Meir Wellber, 36, as its principal guest conductor from next season.
Slightly more startling, at the end of September the Semper will have a new production of Schoenberg’s Moses und Aron, directed by the Catalan bad boy Calixto Bieito.
Alan Gilbert conducts. Sir John Tomlinson und Lance Ryan sing the title roles.
Altogether, there will be 12 new productions at Dresden next season.
