The baritone Igor Golovatenko has told a Russian website that he has twice been refused a visa at the British consulate for this summer’s Glyndebourne Festival.
Golovatenko, who took Glyndebourne by storm in a Donizetti role in 2015, is due to sing Germont in La Traviata. Rehearsals start on April 14.
Someone needs to phone Theresa May. Fast.
