Rachel Willis-Sørensen jumps in.

  • She has cancelled her performance in Il Trovatore, she has cancelled a trip to Spain, a country that has seen recent Covid spikes and from which some countries are subjecting returning travellers to quarantine, and she is just out of hospital.

    What’s with blaming her for something sensible in a time of real uncertainty, roping in a bystander (Dudamel — she would have cancelled whoever was conducting, so he is hardly relevant except as a whipping boy) and the lack of sympathy for someone who has been ill?

  • I heard Willis-Sørenson’s Leonora in Paul Curran’s thrilling production of Il trovatore in Turin a couple of years ago. The audience is in for a real treat as Willis-Sørenson is the real thing.

  • I hope she recovers without any organ damages. I heard of a man of 50 who’s a friend of my niece, after he contracted and recovered from COVID-19 he can’t even walk without a walking stick.
