Italian soprano sings through agony of a broken knee

Carmen Giannattasio has posted:

Hello Friends, unfortunately my knee is again under pain. I’ve partially broken meniscus during last rehearsals and as soon as I terminate this summer run, will operate and fix it. Meanwhile wearing a brace which is not very appealing but helping me a lot. My beautiful collegue Jelena Kordic, who sings Lola in Cavalleria is also under injury.. at least I am not alone;))

Being an Opera Singer can be dangerous;))

Tomorrow last performance as Nedda/Colombina at Semperoper, then off to Torre del Lago for an exciting premiere of Turandot at Puccini Festival which opens on July 14th.




So she’s literally in the cast.

  • That’ doesn’t sound like a broken knee but rather a torn cartilage – the footballer’ injury. Painful nonetheless but generally not as debilitating as a knee fracture
