The soprano, formerly married to Andris Nelsons, has been unexpectedly joined in Dresden by the Chilean-American tenor Jonathan Tetelman, who will jump in tonight as Cavaradossi in place of Riccardo Massi.

Kristine writes: ‘Jonathan and I will sing our first operatic performance together! We have sung a few galas together before, but never a fully staged opera. We’re very excited to sing Tosca and Cavaradossi and hope you can join us @semperoper Dresden. It will be Jonathan’s house debut at Semperoper and only my second performance in this beautiful opera house.’

Here’s one from their Twitter album:

    Das arme Kind!

    A beautiful opera house indeed , both aesthetically and acoustically. One of the world’s greatest orchestras and a superb chorus. What a shame most productions are appalling & casts are variable. Every time there is a starry cast one cannot get a single ticket either. It seems unless one lives around there & becomes a subscriber, one can only attend routine performances in that lovely, but troubled city (with far right insurgence).
