Now it’s personal: Bryan Hymel cancels the Met

From the Gelb feed:

The American tenor, 39, had a hard run of cancellations last year. Last month in Paris he pulled out of Les Troyens ‘for family reasons’.

    Hymel is American, not Canadian.

    The writing has been on the wall for a while, in bright, pulsating neon.

  • Jason Cantanaro says:

    I wonder what is really going on with Mr. Hymel. He has cancelled many engagements in recent seasons. I wanted to see him in this Rigoletto at the Met, but held off buying a ticket in case he cancelled. I am glad I didn’t buy ticket for it. At any rate, I wish him well and hope his “personal reasons” get better quickly.

  • John Rook says:

    Are his personal reasons ‘I don’t want to sing anymore’?

  • Cantantelirico says:

    There has to be a larger world wide pool of tenors who can sing the Duke. I wouldn’t let one of those three tenors listed in the announcement paint my kitchen.
