Sad Pole quits Covent Garden

The Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecień, who is having a nightmare year of cancellations, has withdrawn from the ROH Don Pasquale in October ‘due to personal reasons’.

No replacement has yet been found.

Also out of the Covent Garden season is the Canadian tenor Joseph Kaiser, who was down to sing Ägisth in Elektra.

  • Do we know for sure that he is not ill and just does not want his medical information published on social media?
    Just asking…

  • “Sad Pole Quits Covent Garden”, “Sicklist: No-Show Pole”, “Sicklist: Troubled Pole Quits Munich” –

    Is it really necessary to refer to Mr. Kwiecien’s origins every time he cancels? In the interests of parity, can we look forward to a “No-Show Bavarian” headline the next time Herr Kaufmann fails to show up?

    • Not to mention Argentinian for a certain pianist and Russian for a certain soprano, both of whom are regulars on the No-Show Show.
