First she pulled out of a date in the Tatar Republic. Then out of Lucerne. Now she’s cancelled Paris and Barcelona.

Statement follows:

The laryngotracheitis that caused Anna Netrebko to postpone her concert in Kazan scheduled for May 12 has unexpectedly developed into a more acute respiratory infection with high fever, prompting her doctor in Vienna to order her to remain on vocal rest through May 27. Unfortunately, this means she will not be able to perform her upcoming concerts at the Kultur- und Kongresszentrum Luzern (May 18), Barcelona’s Palau de la Música Catalana (May 21), and Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Élysées (May 24). The Paris concert has been rescheduled for July 12, 2014, and the Barcelona concert on December 17, 2014. The Lucerne performance sadly cannot be rescheduled; however, Anna looks forward to returning to the Kultur- und Kongresszentrum for a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta on June 15, 2015. Anna regrets whatever inconvenience this may cause.
