We hear that the new regime at Bavarian State Opera has appointed Erik Malmquist as head of casting.

He replaces David Lomeli, who steps aside to be a consultant after barely a year in the job.

He has returned to the US for family reasons, joining Santa Fe Opera from today as Chief Artistic Officer.



  • RW2013 says:

    Was one of Alan’s boys…

  • Knowing Clam says:

    Erik worked for Bruce Zemsky and Alan Green for quite a while.

    He is currently Executive Director of the Elgin Symphony Orchestra.

    Surely you can use Google, Norman.
