Top Wagner tenor takes time out

The American heldentenor Stephen Gould has let it be known he is taking an immediate break for family reasons and on doctor’s advice. ‘I must take some time out to regenerate,’ he said in a statement. He will be gone at least two months.

Stephen has pulled out of Siegfried and Götterdämmerung at the Vienna State Opera in January 2016, followed by the new production of William Bolcom’s McTeague in Linz.

We wish him a full recovery.
