Salzburg director: ‘The worst public in the opera are these obsessed gays’main
What he reportedly said was: ‘ The worst public in the opera are these obsessed gays. All these rich guys with nothing to do in their life, just following Anna Netrebko or Jonas Kaufmann on all continents. This is not a real audience for me.’
So what is he doing at the Salzburg Festival?
According to his wiki entry: Warlikowski is gay and was in a long relationship with actor Jacek Poniedziałek but he is currently married to Polish set designer Małgorzata Szczęśniak who is his life partner.
