Cause of young mezzo’s death is made publicmain
The sudden and shocking death last month of Felicity Smith, 33, was caused by a pulmonary embolism, it has been disclosed. She had previously been treated for deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) in her native New Zealand, but was taken off the medication some time before.
As one who has lost a dear friend some years back to a similar cause, may I urge all who have been treated for this condition never to change medication without consulting a second opinion.
The loss of Felicity Smith has left a deep sense of shock among London’s opera community.
