Because I have all this free time, I translated parts of an interview Gérard Mortier gave on French public radio a couple of weeks ago for the SundayArts blog. You can read it all there. (Thanks to Night after Night for the shoutout!)
Mortier is the incoming manager of New York City Opera but I think what he has to say would be a good read for anybody with an interest in culture—and cultural politics. Plus don't you want to hear about his plans with David Lynch?
