Staatstheater Nuremberg, of all places, it’s where it at these days (way before this “La Calisto”, but mind you, I am not protesting being called out to a T on my aesthetic).

Nuremberg has the current Conductor Of The Year, Joanna Mallwitz:

They have a song production night called “Alpha” that discusses masculinites – “an evening about masculinites with songs by women”. Mad props to this attitude. In Nuremberg, of all places.

Also, they have the current reincarnation of Xena, Warrior Princess, on hire, and she is a mezzo:
