The season’s first flu victim is Berlin’s Susanna

From the Staatsoper under den Linden:

Anna Prohaska regrets to have to cancel tonight´s performance of LE NOZZE DI FIGARO due to an influenza infection. We wish her a good and speed recovery and thank Evelin Novak for stepping in as Susanna tonight.

Get those jabs.
