According to an information reported by Berlin’s Tagesspiegel, Culture Senator Klaus Lederer will present on Monday the Latvian Ainars Rubikis (*1978) as Generalmusikdirektor of the Komische Oper. With First prizes at Bamberg’s Mahler Conducting Competition 2010 and the Young Conductors Award in Salzburg 2011, Rubikis is known as an innovative and intelligent conductor. He was musical director in Novosibirsk, but was dismissed in the aftershocks of the Tannhäuser scandal.
