He will be their tootsie-wootsie

A little bird high in the rarefied air of the Rockies informs La Cieca that James Robinson “will be named come September as the new Artistic Director of Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, a post held until this Spring by the late and laudable Colin Graham.”

Robinson is perhaps best remembered here in New York as the guy who knocked up Lucia di Lammermoor.

UPDATE: In a press release embargoed until 5 p.m. Thursday, Opera Colorado announced Robinson’s resignation as Artistic Director to assume “a new position at another American opera company but [he] declined to discuss the specifics as a courtesy to that company until their official announcement next month.”

Opera Colorado’s President and General Director, Peter Russell is also resigning. Stepping up to the plate will be Greg Carpenter, currently Director of Development, as the company’s Executive Director.
