British conductor Bramwell Tovey, 67, has announced that he is stepping down as Artistic Director of the Calgary Opera. He has held the position since January 2019. His decision to leave came as a result of the need for more personal time to address the reoccurrence of an ongoing health issue that requires immediate attention, a press release from Calgary Opera says. « This health issue is not related to COVID-19, however public health restrictions as a result of COVID-19 that limit his ability to travel expedited his decision. » According to the Calgary Herald, Tovey, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2019, is undergoing another round of treatment in Vancouver, where he lives.
