Claire Guillemain, recruited one year ago to create the Cité musicale de Metz comprising in one structure the National Orchestra of Lorraine and Metz en scènes (three performance halls, among them the famous Arsenal), has left the ship before even arriving in port. The unexpected departure has officially not been explained, and rumours say that Guillemin must have seen that the task to direct such an enormous cultural structure with 150 employees and a budget of € 13.2 Million is not realistic. Anyhow, Metz has now suffered a severe setback in its merger plans.
