Sicklist: Florez is down. Will he make the World Cup?

June 5, 2018 by norman lebrecht


Juan Diego Flórez has pulled out of Vienna’s Rigoletto on June 7 and 10.

Saving his voice for the Putin football fest?

Florez is replaced as the Duke by the Sicilian tenor, Ivan Magrì, making his house debut.

Also out is Ryan Speedo Green. His sub as Sparafucile is Jongmin Park.
