Trouble at Scottish Opera, again.
The French conductor Emmanuel Joel-Hornak has resigned as music director for what are described as ‘personal reasons’. He was appointed in April and started work on August 1. The company has cancelled a concert he was due to have given next week.
The rumour mill is running wild, but the cause appears to have been a breakdown in relations with Scottish Opera’s general director Alex Reedijk.
The company has been on a downward spiral for several years.
