The possibility that the Liceu artistic director, Christina Scheppelman, could direct the Paris Opera, replacing Stéphane Lissner, has been discarded by publishing American media that the German has signed for the Seattle Opera as General Director. Scheppelman will be replaced in Barcelona by Víctor García de Gomar.
