French tenor cancels Berlin debut over Covid policyNews
Message from the independent-minded Cyrille Dubois:
Given the establishment of a disproportionate testing policy at the Staatsoper de Berlin, (2 pcr tests for 3 days on-site PLUS full vaccination status), I regret to cancel my participation in the 20th anniversary concert of the D Astrea concert in Berlin this Monday. I was looking forward to making my debut in this city, but we can’t continue to condone unilateral measures from certain houses that go beyond the general framework prescribed by scientific institutions.
Let me remind you that a positive or “sick” artist does not get paid and we have had 2 years of continuous test results (more than 50 years as far as I’m concerned) => stress, precariousness, often limited solidarity… in addition to the warning of phoniatrics who are concerned about the multiplication of invasive gestures on our ORL spheres… endangering our instruments until eternity….
Let’s not relive another winter of psychosis.
