Metropolitan Opera loses chorus singer to Covid-19main
The chorus of the Metropolitan Opera has posted a death notice for one of its bass singers, Antoine Hodge, who died on Monday of the effects of the pandemic.
With heavy hearts, we are sad to report the passing of our friend and colleague Antoine Hodge after a two month battle with COVID-19. His huge heart and talent will be greatly missed and we, along with so many in our opera community, mourn his passing.
New York City Opera writes:
Antoine was not only a beautiful singer, but also a beloved colleague and friend. His death leaves a huge emptiness in the hearts of so many who loved him. Antoine lent his glorious instrument to NYCO many times including in productions of L’amore dei tre re and La Cenerentola. Our thoughts go out to his family and everyone who knew and loved Antoine. He will be truly and dearly missed.
