Leonora Thomson is stepping down after just four years as managing director of Welsh National Opera, it was announced this morning.
It appears she can’t find a way to work with the incoming intendant Aidan Lang, former head of Seattle Opera, and it may be that her job is about to be abolished.
Michael Garvey has also submitted his resignation as director of the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales.
One resignation would be a misfortune. Two looks like a crisis.
