Life goes on: London’s RAM has new head of operamain
The Royal Academy of Music has recruited Brenda Hurley as its next Head of Opera, starting (hopefully) in July 2020.
She replaces Gareth Hancock, who resigned in November after allegations of inappropriate conduct.
Hurley has been head of Zurich International Opera Studio since 2012. Before that she coached singers at the Metropolitan Opera in New York for four years, spent nine years at the Salzburg Festival and 15 seasons at Glyndebourne.
She’s a catch.
