The board of Malmö Opera have decided to hold onto the conductor Michael Bojesen, the company’s director, after he was forced to resign earlier today as chairman of Denmark’s arts council.

Bojesen has denied wrongdoing.



  • Henrik J says:

    Master of lies and manipulation: Michael Bojesen.
    Let’s see how long Malmö Opera supports that shady guy.

  • K Keller says:

    Danish Radio Concert Hall leadership is rotten, nothing new there, and has been for many years. This and the other stories from Slipped Discs about the culture at Danish Radio, will go on for many years, because the management with K Bohr allows it, with weak leadership.

  • Patrick Gillot says:

    Let’s remind all the barkers that he is innocent up to be proven guilty.

  • David K. Nelson says:

    It is hard to have one’s opinions about this man not be influenced by the photograph, which reeks of smugness. Memo to self: if I ever become famous enough, make sure my official photograph is suited to be used with with worst possible headline and story about me.
