As foreseen, French cultural manager Dominique Meyer, currently the director of the Vienna Opera, was appointed yesterday as super-intendant of La Scala in Milan, the city’s mayor announced.

Meyer, 64, previously director of the Paris and Lausanne Operas, will take over from current Scala director Alexander Pereira, whose contract was not renewed.

Meyer will take up the post from mid-2020, while Pereira will stay on until mid-2021, according to the president of the Scala Foundation.

Pereira, 71, has been director of La Scala since September 2014 and was not renewed due to a disagreement over the possible use of Saudi funds to finance La Scala.
