Vienna Opera has transition in which 2 chiefs never meet

The arrangements were clarified today.

Dominique Meyer, who takes over as Sovrintendente of La Scala on March 1, 2020, will run both Milan and Vienna in tandem for three months.

His contract at the Vienna State Opera will terminate on 30 June 2020, two months ahead of schedule.

His successor Bogdan Roščić will start work in Vienna two months earlier than intended on July 1, 2020.

Viennese swing-door solution.
