Our social correspondent reports:

On behalf of Andris Nelsons and Kristine Opolais, we are thrilled to bring you the news that Adriana Anna Nelsons was born on 28th December at 13:50 in Riga, weighing 3.8 kilograms.
All three of the Nelsons Family are doing well and Andris is a very proud Father. Many greetings from the Nelsons Family to you. 
Readers will recalls that Andris has taken a month’s paternity leave from conducting, perhaps the first maestro to do so.


  • Andrew Bennett says:

    Great news for one of classical music’s nicest couples. But you could mention that Kristine is also a supremely accomplished and successful soprano. Defintely not just Mrs Nelsons!
