Just in: Third casualty in Vienna’s haunted Hansel and Gretelmain
First Chen Reiss pulled out as Gretel with a chest infection.
Then Daniela Sindram missed the dress rehearsal as Hansel (she’ll be fine tonight).
Now Adrian Eröd had to cancel tonight with tracheitis; Clemens Unterreiner will sing Peter in the première.
Vienna State Opera has not done Hansel and Gretel in 70 years.
Maybe it’s spooked.
