Sicklist: Paris goes dark as Damrau cancels

The Pilharmonie de Paris has no show on Friday after Diana Damrau halted her Europe-wide Strauss recital tour.

Pour des raisons de santé, Diana Damrau est contrainte d’annuler sa venue, le concert est donc malheureusement annulé.

Her accompanist was to have been Sir Antonio Pappano.

Go see a good movie instead.



  • BillOxford says:

    I do hope she’s OK – to cancel all the remaining concerts is somewhat worrying.

  • Karl says:

    What movie do you recommend? Zombieland: Double Tap?

  • Edgar Self says:

    French is such an elegant language in which to announce a cancellation. I would also regret the loss of Antonio Pappano, said to be a marvelous pianist.
