The diva called off last night’s concert at a few hours notice with a heavy cold.

Ms Bartoli issued the following statement:

‘I feel sad and disappointed to give up this concert, which was so important to me.  I have been hoping until the last moment to be able to sing tonight. I thank all those who bought tickets and were waiting for this evening. Mr Pereira and I are looking for a new date to reschedule the concert as soon as possible.’

La Scala arranged for a concert to go ahead with her accompanying ensemble, I Barocchisti and Diego Fasolis, but refunds were offered to those who requested.

Details from Graham Spicer at Gramilano.



  • Gramilano says:

    Just to underline the fact that EVERYONE can have a refund, and the concert with I Barocchisti was offered free to those who arrived without having consulted the internet beforehand. Very respectable on the theatre management’s part.
