Looking back with love – Dominique Meyer at the Wiener Staatsoper
He would have imagined his brilliant last season differently: after ten years as director of the Wiener Staatsoper, Dominique Meyer will move on to the famous La Scala in Milan next season. After a successful Viennese decade, his ballet director Manuel Legris also has moved his center of life and work to Milan.
Dominique Meyer leaves his successor Bogdan Roscic a well-ordered, financially very successful house. In his last days in Vienna, he and ORF presenter Teresa Vogl look back on successes, stage wins, but also on defeats and exceptional situations in ten eventful years as opera director. Many excerpts from ORF integral recordings, but also from various opera streams underpin important and impressive opera and ballet productions of the past seasons.
