A head rolls at Prague’s National Theatre

Yesterday, two months before his term ended, Petr Kofroň resigned as Artistic Director of the National Theater Opera and State Opera. Jan Burian, CEO of the theater, will take over his responsibilities until 31 July when the Norwegian director Per Boye Hansen will take over.

Hansen had counted on continuing to work with Petr Kofron for a handover period.

More than 350 artists and staff have protested at Hansen’s appointment.
