Opera Today reported a few days ago that Xu Zhong (许忠), a pianist from Shanghai, will become the new artistic director of Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania, replacing Will Humburg who resigned at the end of 2011. Xu, who attended Shanghai Conservatory’s affiliated secondary school in his salad days, studied under the same teacher (Wang Yu (王羽)) who nurtured pianists such as Jiang Tian (江天) and Ying Tian (应天峰).
