Dear readers and fans of Opera Gazet,
On January 1, 2024, I will step down as Editor-in-Chief of Opera Gazet and be succeeded by Marco Aranowicz. I have held the position of Editor-in-Chief for five years with great pleasure and enthusiasm. The number of subscribers and Facebook followers, as well as the number of reviewers, has grown remarkably over the last five years. We now have 2,800 Facebook followers and 15 reviewers around the world. We are welcome in all opera houses except Amsterdam, where unfortunately censorship still prevails.
But “Freunde, nicht diese Töne!” Let us be glad that Opera Gazet remains in good hands. Marco Aranowicz, a great opera connoisseur, will take over and I wish him all the best.
