Sicklist: Bryn Terfel cancels Dutchman

May 17, 2018 by norman lebrecht


The Welsh baritone has been suffering from vocal fatigue for the past several months.

He has just cancelled a Flying Dutchman at the Baden Baden Whitsum Festival with laryngitis.

Gergiev conducts the Munich Philharmonic.

The Swede John Lundgren has been flown in.

Wish Bryn better.

      I thought the point was just that it was a picture of Terfel.

        There are plenty of pictures of him in the correct role though.

  2. Olassus says:

    Both the Dutchman and the Daland cancelled, both in Munich (two days ago) and at B-B.
