A Word from Jonas Kaufmann
«Dear Friends. It is with great regret that I am forced to cancel my concert at L’Opéra de Montréal on February 2. I am in New York with influenza and a high fever and it is for this reason that I am unable to perform at this time. I am extremely sad to not be able to appear in this concert which was planned with such enthusiasm and with such precision and professionalism thanks to the wonderful artistic team at L’Opera de Montreal. This concert was to have been one of the highlights of my North American tour. My management is in contact with the Artistic Director of L’Opéra de Montréal to find a date in the near future when we can re-schedule the concert. Thank you for your kind understanding and I hope to see you very soon “onstage” in Montreal. A très bientôt, with my warmest greetings to you all. Jonas Kaufmann. »
