Olga Enns, acting director of Perm Opera and Ballet, has died after two weeks in a coma. The funeral is today.
Olga, 33, fell into an unfenced opera pit during a rehearsal of Peer Gynt. She had worked in Perm since 2006 and was among those responsible for making the theatre friendly to foreign companies. Sony has made several opera recordings on the premises.
Olga was appointed acting director last year and seemed destined for greater things. Olga is survived by her mother and a sister.
