Has been announced as Yannick Nezet-Seguin.
Interesting, and thank you. From what I've heard of him, both at Philadelphia and the Met, he's on the dynamic and spectacular side, and sometimes a bit glib. Not always a virtue; I thought his Rusalka, which has come out on DVD, was ok but but less atmospheric than Sir Andrew Davis, who isn't so hard-driven. I haven't heard him do Wagner, but I think he's supposed to lead Fligende Hollander next season.
