Stone drops Munich for Netflix

Opera’s current go-to Australian director Simon Stone has told Munich’s Residenztheater he can’t open its season next month.

He’s shooting a Netflix drama in London with Ralph Fiennes.

Stone was named last week as a cornerstone of Bodgan Roscic’s new regime at the Vienna Opera. Well, that bodes well.

  • his Medea was real shit, very bad and stupid. it was really nothing. he shouldn’t be invited at all again to opera houses. Maybe Netflix is his Thing.

    • I wouldn’t have put it quite like that, but you’re probably right. I’m worried, though, about the Residenz rolling over just like that. Have they gone trendy, or what?
