Oman, o man: Scheppelmann to Muscat

Last year, the Royal Opera House Muscat in Oman officially opened for business with a gala performance led by Placido Domingo (in front of the scenes) and a lot of guidance from the Kennedy Center (behind the scenes). The opera house announced its new season yesterday, and it turns out a lot of familiar faces, including the National Symphony Orchestra and the Farrell Ballet, will be appearing there in 2012-13.

There was another piece of Washington-related news, too; according to the Times of Oman, Christina Scheppelmann, currently Vice President of Artistic Operations for the Washington National Opera, is going to take over as CEO of the Royal Opera House Muscat as of December 1. Scheppelmann announced her impending departure from WNO earlier this month, but could not yet reveal where she was going.
