Berlin Phil cancels streamed concert over Covid+ baritonemain
Message from the orchestra:
The baritone Vladislav Sulimsky, who was to sing the title role in the concert performance of the opera Mazeppa by Peter Tchaikovsky, is unfortunately unable to travel to Berlin because of a positive Covid-19 diagnosis.
With great regret, the Berliner Philharmoniker and their chief conductor Kirill Petrenko have decided to cancel the performance after no suitable replacement could be found at such short notice for the leading role in this very rarely performed opera.
Peter Tchaikovsky‘s opera Mazeppa was originally to be presented in the Festspielhaus at the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden under chief conductor Kirill Petrenko and was to be streamed live in a concert performance from the Philharmonie Berlin in the Digital Concert Hall at 7:00 pm on 14 May 2021.
