Those persistent rumors (see today's Dagospia) about Scala GM Stephane Lissner being on his way to Paris Opera to replace Nicolas Joel in 2015?
Lissner said earlier today in Milan that it's not going to happen.
Lissner's Scala very comfortable contract expires in 2017.
Still, despite today's remarks, the smart money seems to remain on Lissner leaving; by January 2013 the French government will have to announce the name of the new Opéra GM. If it's Lissner, as it seems to be increasingly likely, expect all hell to break loose in Milan.
