The Theater an der Wien has lost its artistic director, Jochen Breiholz, to the Opéra de Lyon.

The brilliant Breiholz is Serge Dorny’s last hire in Lyon before he departs for Munich.

    The artistic director of Theater an der Wien is Roland Geyer.
    “Brilliant”(sic) Breiholz is in the administration.
