One has to admire the self-confidence (in both the artist and those who employ him) to make a commitment 2 years down the road to a 95-year old director. I wish no ill to Mr. Zeffirelli, but--actuarially--it seems just a bit risky...

Subject: At 95, Zeffirelli set to Direct New "Rigoletto"

It may not (directly at least) have anything to do with sexual scandals (that is, outside of the opera itself), but it was just announced that the 95 year old Franco Zeffirelli will be directing a new production of "Rigoletto" to premiere in the Arabian state of Oman.  "Rigoletto) is to be a co-production with Arena di Verona, which will be responsible for the sets, Rome Opera (with the Zeffirelli Foundation) for the costumes and also co-produced by, Lithuanian National Opera, and Croatian National Opera.  This is Franco's first go at Verdi's opera since his 1961 production for Trieste, which came to London in 1964.

This will be interesting, I am sure.  I'm looking forward to see who will be in the cast!
