Exit from the Labyrinth
The good news is that Covent Garden has managed to engage the services of young composer/conductor Ryan Wigglesworth to replace Pappano. Wigglesworth conducted the UK premiere of Detlev Glanert's Caligula with English National Opera (and will be returning to the Coliseum for Carmen.) He opened this year's Aldeburgh Festival conducting a double bill of Oliver Knussen's two operas Higgledy Piggledy Pop and Where the Wild Things Are.
