English National Opera Artistic Director Daniel Kramer Resigns

The American theatre director, now 42, had never run an organization when he took the helm at the then-troubled ENO in 2016.

Daniel Kramer: How A Great Big Artistic Flop Prepared Me To Lead English National Opera

“I would say aged 37 I went through a complete midlife crisis. There’s this thing with an artist, you have to be very careful your self worth is not bound with your work. You’re not a bad person if you get one star. I started to meditate and I’m very proud of that and I started to work with a different community of people, and I started to work in service and sat with people in a hospice who were dying of cancer, I worked with Zen Bhuddist monks, I started to teach more.”
