A Naples court has reinstated Stéphane Lissner with immediate effect as General Administrator and Artistic Director of the local Teatro San Carlo, but Carlo Fuortes, the new Director installed by the Meloni government, does not want to give up his position and is waiting for an appeal ruling to confirm the ousting of the Frenchman.

This has never seen before in the history of opera! It’s like in Goethe’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice.  For a few months, if not longer, two opera directors will have to live together. Or fight. A true Meloni disaster. Italy is the laughing stock of the music world.
