Our social affairs correspondent reports that Ariane Matiakh, newly appointed GMD of Handel’s town Halle, today posted one word on her social media: Separated.

Ariane, 38, has been married to the baritone Thomas Oliemans.

We wish them both well.

    She has great talent and beauty. One assumes that she won’t be alone for too long.

  • Barbara says:

    Why do you think she needs to have someone else in her life? That’s very patronising.

  • clarrieu says:

    “We wish them both well.” Well, we’d be happy to do so as well, if only this story was any of our business, which it’s definitely NOT.
