We hear that Roberto Alagna has pulled out of the first night of the new Calixto Bieito Carmen.
He is being replaced tonight as Don José by Jean-François Borras.
There has been no announcement, just a change to the website. They are trying to keep this as lowkey as possible.
Message from Roberto Alagna:
Dear Norman, Thanks to remember me sometimes for my greatest events ,like when I wasn’t wearing a tie in Wien and now a cancellation.Dont worry it’s just a simple human Bronchitis.Maybe some readers will also appreciate good news sometimes.All the best … Rob
