Just in: English Touring Opera chief is being eased outNews
Following his appalling miscommunication with orchestral musicians, James Conway is taking a half-step back from running ETO.
Here’s the manicured PR bleah:
After 20 years leading English Touring Opera, Director James Conway has decided to take a step away from a full time position with the company in order to pursue freelance opportunities.
Conway has agreed to remain Artistic Director of English Touring Opera in a part time capacity until the end of 2022, working with Interim Chief Executive Michael Garvey; during this period the company will recruit a new leader to carry on its important work in bringing live opera to people and places all over the country.
