Kaufmann’s to cancel?main
Opera Australia has announced concert performances of Andrea Chenier, starring Jonas Kaufmann, Ludovic Tézier and Eva-Maria Westbroek.
They are in Sydney on August 8 and 11, followed by Melbourne on August 13.
Kaufmann has just cancelled his hometown appearances at the Munich opera festival through to the end of this month, pleading ill-health.
If he’s feeling that unwell, a long flight to Australia for just three shows might not be the ticket to recovery.
