Just in: Jonas Kaufmann cancels Covent Garden

The sought-after tenor has pulled out of Carmen this weekend with a viral infection, he tweets.

He was only due to sing two performances and he may not be back before 2017.

His replacement is the Italian tenor, Andrea Carè.

  • By ‘just in’ you mean ‘announced yesterday at 3pm on the Royal Opera House’s website’, yes? Keep up, keep up…

  • Couldn’t be bothered. Predictably so. But booked anyway by the ROH management, desperate to get him to do something in the season, to keep up with the whale count. (‘Jonas’, reddit?)

    Can one really blame him? It doesn’t fire the belly, does it? Two nights with an old Carmen?
