  • oncnp changed the title to New ROH Music Director - Jakub Hrůša

I don't think his is a name I'd heard mentioned as being in the frame, and I haven't seen him conduct. Does anyone have any thoughts?

 

It will be interesting to see where the repertoire goes.

Brave :)

 

I don't remember associating him with opera before, so no idea what he's like.  I wonder if there will be more detail in Radio 3's In Tune this afternoon?

 

The significant period of overlap between the two conductors ought to be good.
