The sought-after tenor has rebuffed bids from the German television networks to sing in the New Year at the Tchaikovsky State Conservatoire in Moscow.

The National Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by the rising Italian conductor, Speranza Scappucci.

    He still has time to get sick and back out…

  • Thomasina says:

    And does he then board an airplane to Japan? His first concert(after the second postponement) is in Osaka on January 4th.

      Then fly to NY on Jan 20 where the “resale” tickets in the parquet are going for $1000 !

      • kaa12840 says:

        correction: tickets in parquet going for up to $1543.00

      • Thomasina says:

        According to my friend, the tickets are far from sold out in Japan. It’s understandable after two postponements because in the first week of January(more important than the Christmas week), the airline fee and the hotel fee are the highest in the year…

  • Catalina says:

    In Barcelona ( Liceu Teatre ) there are many free tickets to see Andrea Chenier in March…

    • Tristan says:

      nothing to worry as they will be sold out soon – every opera house wants to offer the tenor around! he is the one and only!
