Woman conductor wins Italian game of musical chairsNews
There’s a gripping game of musical chairs going on in Italian opera following the retirement, aged 80, of the La Scala chorus master, Bruno Casoni.
The Milan post has swiftly been filled by Alberto Malazzi of the Teatro Communale di Bologna.
That leaves a vacancy at bologna.
In a male dominated field, they have chosen Gea Garatti Ansini, who has been working recently in Rome and other opera companies.
She is originally from Bologna, which helps.
She starts work next month.
