The Welsh baritone has cancelled next week’s Flying Dutchman.

No reason given but probablyCovid travel-related.

His replacement is Tomasz Konieczny.


  • Tristan says:

    not so sure if he is still up to this role to be honest….

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    We’re not allowed in to Germany, or France or the Netherlands at the moment.

    • operacentric says:

      Has it changed? France was ok. Germany too if it is essential (which work in culture has hitherto been deemed to be).

  • DG says:

    He was cancelling right and left before COVID as well..

  • Le Křenek du jour says:

    What, a Welshman who skips a Dutchman at Munich to bend the knee before a Hanoverian?

    Don’t they know what Men of Harlech all know, that Welshmen never yield?

    “ Tis the tramp of Saxon foemen,
    Saxon spearmen, Saxon bowmen,
    Be they knights or hinds or yeomen,
    Grind them in the dust! “

  • Player says:

    He’s still in Brexitland singing Falstaff, so no time to quarantine etc before the Munich show.

  • Tom Phillips says:

    Konieczny is far superior in this role (and at this point in virtually EVERY OTHER role).
