Manfred Honeck to leave Stuttgart Opera
Share with others:
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra maestro Manfred Honeck will not extend his contract as general music director of the Stuttgart Opera, the company announced yesterday. He will depart after the 2010-11 season before the new head director, Jossi Wieler, arrives. Current head Albrecht Puhlmann, who has been at Stuttgart the entire time Honeck has, will leave at the same time. Honeck is scheduled to conduct three more operas in Stuttgart, including Wagner's "Parsifal" this spring and several orchestra concerts.
