A young soprano says: My body can’t take itmain
The French-Danish soprano Elsa Dreisig, 28, is one of the rising names on the opera scene. Winner of the 2015 Domingo Operalia and an ensemble member of Barenboim’s Berlin State Opera, she is in constant demand for jump-ins and tours.
Elsa has just cancelled the last three events of her season with a candid confession:
I am very sorry to announce I will be canceling my last 3 concerts in this “crazy” (but amazing!) year. I was really looking forward to coming to Denmark, my home, but I just can’t. Neither my voice, my body or my mind have the power. It has just been too much, and sometimes you need to make difficult choices in your life. This was one of them and I truly hope that I will make my “revanche” soon, and come to Denmark and sing for you. I love this country so much and I am grateful for all your support. I will not let you down 🌸 I wish you all a beautiful summer, and see you next season. Thank you for your trust and support. Your Elsa
It’s tough out there.
