Marc Minkowski
(c) Marco Borggreve

Marc Minkowski is Director General of the Bordeaux National Opera and conductor of the house’s orchestra. Yet, during past weeks tensions have steadily increased with the orchestra’s musicians who question the « technical, musical and human » qualities of the conductor as it reads on the leaflet distributed by the musicians to the audience. French media report that he is well accepted as General Manager, but not as a conductor. Almost 95% of the orchestra’s members no longer want to be conducted by Minkowski.
