ENO’s future? CEO says it should be more like Love Islandmain
English National Opera’s Stuart Murphy has written his silliest article yet, in London’s unread freesheet.
Among other things:
As my teenagers sat glued to the final of Love Island last week, it struck me how often it (sic) echoes (sic) the drama we see on stage at English National Opera…
This week we start the formal search for our new artistic director and will be after (sic) someone who clocks (sic) how outward-facing opera, and ENO, needs to be. Someone who watches Sky Arts and BBC4 and knows theatre, opera and dance? Sure. But also watch or are aware of the pull of I’m A Celebrity… and the Marvel films.
We’ll spare you the rest of his solecisms.
