Just in: Paris cancels Barbermain
Hours before curtain-up, the Opéra national de Paris posted this:
The performance of Il Barbiere di Siviglia scheduled for today, Saturday January 11, has been cancelled.
It was a new production with Lisette Oropesa and Florian Sempey.
The second performance, on Tuesday, has not been cancelled yet.
But there seems to be little progress in resolving the national strike over pensions.
