The new artistic director at Portland Opera will be Priti Gandhi, recruited from Minnesota Opera where she is Vice President, Artistic, and chief artistic officer.

(Does anyone know what these titles mean?)

Ms Gandhi is from San Diego, California.

    Where is Potland? I want to go there. The weed is free.

    • Pianofortissimo says:

      It’s somewhere west of the wild West. However, it’s burning, so there will not be much weed left.

  • Wurm says:

    NL, you should know what these titles mean – you’ve been around the music biz long enough!

  • JoshW says:

    Was she even in MN for a year? She certainly never produced even one non-Covid season. I guess the grass is always greener. (Legal pot pun intended.)

  • drummerman says:

    In other words, she’ll be doing the same job in Portland as she did in Minneapolis. Different title but same responsibilities, one would think. We wish her well.

    I guess we can expect Satyagraha as the opening production
