Having persuaded Placido Domingo to withdraw from the Games’ opening,  Italy’s Anna Pirozzi and Uruguay’s Erwin Schrott have been lined up as subs.

The launch event, titled Kabuki x Opera, will take place at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium on April 18.

  • Sandeling says:

    Domingo was not pushed, but decided himself to withdraw because of the complexity of the project

    • Saxon Broken says:

      Um…he was “persuaded to withdraw”, and allowed that perhaps the complexity of the project was the reason (e.g. no losing face, which is very important in Japan).

  • Zelda Macnamara says:

    Erwin Schrott is hardly a “sub”. I’d rather hear him than Domingo any day.
