Michael Boder, Music Director of the Royal Opera in Copenhagen, won’t renew his contract this summer. According to the Danish press, he quits his job over a deep discontentment with the management and ongoing budget cuts, which prevent any serious artistic planning. Yet, the newspaper Politiken does not manage its criticism against the leaving Music Director, saying that his repertoire did not go far beyond the German opera and the avant-garde, with the Italian opera by Verdi and Puccini being not his cup of tea. Politiken concludes: « He is hardly the ideal man for the job. » Nevertheless, it looks like if the Royal Danish Opera got a major artistic problem.
