The least capricious of tenors has pulled out of a prestige date with Bryn Terfel in front of the Zurich Opera House on April 26, marking the inauguration of the redesigned Sechseläutenplatz. Jonas cited ‘personal reasons’ for the cancellation. Go figure.
Bryn will have to make do with Julie Fox, Anna Goryachova and Benjamin Bernheim, the Philharmonia Zurich and conductor Alain Altinoglu.
