ENO pursues Norway optionmain
We hear that Englsh National Opera has earmarked its choice of next artistic director.
The person being wooed is Annilese Miskimmon, director of Norwegian Opera and Ballet.
Miskimmon, a contentious figure up north, has distinguished herself at Glyndebourne by proclaiming Madam Butterfly to be ‘repulsive’.
Just what ENO needs, then.
Others on the shortlist include two staffers and a chap from Norwich.
Not much of a search.
