A star mezzo is not yet ready to returnNews
The Georgian mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelshvili has been replaced by La Scala tonight in Adriana Lecouvreur.
‘I had to make a very difficult decision and cancel my second performance of Adriana Lecouvreur at Teatro Alla Scala and also Verdi Requiem with Maestro Barenboim and Berlin Philharmonic on March 11,12 and 13.
After 2+ years of pandemic and very difficult pregnancy I felt that I have to be back as soon as possible to be able to support my family and our little angel, but my body is just not working yet.
I gave birth on November 30 and I started studying on January 1st with my teacher Maestro David Holst.
we’ve been working hard together with my teacher and my husband who supported me always and in everything but the body is just not ready yet and I need a period of studies without having stress of performance ahead of me!
I hope I will be able to come back for my last 2 performances of Adriana Lecouvreur at La Scala on March 16th and 19th.’
