There are all sorts of theories doing the rounds as to why Angela Gheorghiu left Jonas Kaufmann counting his fingernails on stage when she failed to make a crucial entry.
Here are some of the most popular notions from Conspiracy Central:
1 She resented Kaufmann getting an encore for E lucevan
2 She wasn’t happy with the substitute conductor (Jesus Lopez-Cobos standing in for Mikko Franck)
3 She had to take a call from her broker
4 She had to answer a call of nature
5 A suspender snapped
6 The weather changed
7 She had a senior moment.
Feel free to add your own.
Here’s the horrendous moment when Angie fails to appear.
