Vienna sickie: There’s a Russian in the wings

Anita Hartig has dropped out of the last three Bohèmes of the year at the Vienna State Opera, including a December 22 livestream.

Irina Lungu, 39, will shiver on screen in Zeffirelli’s timeworn 1963 production. It’s her first Mimi in Vienna.

Marco Armiliato conducts.

  • These old productions are generally better than new productions. A superb conductor in Italian opera by the way. I remember performances of Tosca given by Armiliato & Simone Young last year in Vienna & Berlin respectively. There was no competition.
