The Welsh baritone has been suffering from vocal fatigue for the past several months.

He has just cancelled a Flying Dutchman at the Baden Baden Whitsum Festival with laryngitis.

Gergiev conducts the Munich Philharmonic.

The Swede John Lundgren has been flown in.

Wish Bryn better.

  • Olassus says:

    Both the Dutchman and the Daland cancelled, both in Munich (two days ago) and at B-B.

    • DP says:

      Daland (G Groissböck ) cancelled in Munich but will sing in baden baden tomorrow according to the festspielhaus there

  • Sue says:

    Come back soon, Bryn. We love your work.
