Just in: French opera festival is cancelled

We are told that the Opéra Côté Jardin, built around a production of Gounod’s Faust, has been called off at the eleventh hour, apparently for lack of funds.

The artists have been notified, but there has been no formal announcement.

The organiser is the French baritone Norbert Dol.
