Leipzig clears out its opera team

The incoming intendant of Oper Leipzig, Tobias Wolff, wants nothing to do with the ancien regime.

He has named the undervalued Kapellmeister Christoph Gedschold as music director and is bringing in Cornelia Preissinger as opera director and deputy artistic director and Marlene Hahn as head dramaturg.

The new team does not start work until August 2022.

Until them Wolff is head of the Handel festival in Göttingen.
