Regarding our collaboration with director Peter Konwitschny

Press.

In connection to the preparatory rehearsal of the opera Boris Godunov on Tuesday, April 17, there was a conflict between Peter Konwitschny and co-workers around the stage. Konwitschny acted in a manner which contravenes with the Göteborg Opera's view regarding how we work together and how to express oneself among co-workers. The following day, the project management had a conversation with him, and the management at the Göteborg Opera chose to terminate the cooperation.
