The opera house in the Russian city Perm, will not be renovated and it will not get a new stage. Too costly, the politicians said. Teodor Currentzis, the city’s ebullient music director is fuming, as are the contractors whose contract was simply terminated. Now, the authorities are considering the idea of building a multipurpose concert hall, which could be used not only for any type of concerts but also for opera and ballet. The officials are confident that the construction of the concert hall will be cheaper than the opera construction work.
