Italian media are reporting that Claudio del Monaco, son of the great tenor Mario del Monaco, is in critical condition in a Treviso hospital after what appears to be a domestic attack. Claudio, who is 64, was on holiday near Venice with his German wife, opera singer Daniela, 35,
when he was stabbed four times in the chest, reportedly with a bread knife. He underwent surgery and remains in critical condition. The couple are based in Belgrade, where Claudio is a former head of opera at the National Theatre.

NB Claudio del Monaco is not to be confused with his more successful brother Giancarlo.
