The soprano Latonia Moore, who sang a stupendous last-minute Met Aida in 2012, has announced she’s getting married in a fortnight, and that she’s starting a family. The whole opera world is thrilled for her.
Latonia was due to reprise Aida in New York at Christmas, but that now seems unlikely – even if the Met is up and running by then.
UPDATE: Message to Slipped Disc from Latonia: ‘Who says I’m not singing my Aida performances!? Do you know when I’m due, sir? Exactly.’
