Bogdan Roscic, incoming director of the Vienna State Opera and a man of no prior opera experience, has inserted another high-paid job into the stressed-out budget.
Bog, presently head of Sony Classical, has hired Robert Körner from Lyon Opera to be his casting director.
He previously appointed Sergio Morabito of Oper Stuttgart as chief dramaturg.
Neither of these positions existed before.
What will be left for the director to do?
Play goalkeeper, maybe.
