The German tenor has pulled out of tonight’s Richard Strauss concert with bronchitis.
He has not been replaced. The concert is off. Here’s what the Barbican website says:
Jonas deeply regrets that because he has bronchitis this concert is cancelled. In due course we hope to reschedule this concert to a future date.
Ticketholders will receive a full refund to the original payment method by returning their tickets…
