Notes: The Munich State Opera have just announced Kirill Petrenko as new General Music Director. Great to see so many young new faces! The current schedule includes Il Barbiere di Seviglia and Medea in Corinto featuring Alastair Miles, who popped straight over to Munich following the final night of Niobe at the Royal Opera House on Sunday.
Also, Schliengensief's final project opera premiered in Berlin under Daniel Barenboim: 'Metanoia', featuring Annette Dasch. And Kristina Opolais is now tweeting for the Munich State Opera on the coming production of Rusalka . This is one to follow. "http://twitter.com/#!/bay_staatsoper"
