The Tebaldi Foundation reminds Gerard Mortier
Gerard Mortier, among the most influential opera personalities of modern times, has passed away on Sunday March 9th in Brussels. A daring innovator and talent scout, he has left a distinctive mark on the Salzburg Festival as well as on a number of seasons of the Paris Opera and, more recently, of the Teatro Real in Madrid.
He should have chaired the international Opera Jury of the 2013 edition of the Tebaldi Voice Competition, an appointment he had to turn down due to his worsening health conditions.
The President, together with the Artistic Director and the Board of the Renata Tebaldi Foundation, would like to highlight the extraordinary value of his human and artistic persona, who has constantly embodied accuracy and courage.
