Vienna’s future? Something borrowed, something bluemain
The incoming director of the Vienna State Opera, Bogdan Roščić, has leaked plans for 10 new productions to the tabloid press.
His star attraction will be a Traviata, imported from the Paris Opéra.
The new Vienna has all the hallmarks of a Bogdan record-company production. It’s a bunch of deals that look just like everyone else’s.
In a word: Bog-standard.
