She will be replaced by the French soprano Catherine Hunold.

  • Not a major role.

    One could scrap Kundry completely, and it would probably go unnoticed, at least in Palermo.

    Dienen, dienen…

  • ==at least in Palermo.

    It’s fair to say it’s a very inattentive audience there.
    Most of the patrons go just wanting to hear ‘Norma’

  • She already pulled out of this year’s “Parsifal” at Deutsche Oper Berlin. Seems like “family” equals “I just can’t do it”.

  • Kundry had no family at all, she wandered through the ages as a reincarnating symbol of cursed feminine alienation and split personality syndrome, desperately seeking a therapist.
