    News

    Anna Netrebko to undergo foot surgery, cancels performances in Germany and London

    It is with great regret that Anna Netrebko must cancel her performances over the next three weeks in order to undergo surgery to alleviate severe pain in her foot. The affected performances include concerts with Erwin Schrott in Baden-Baden (January 3), Hannover (January 6), and Mannheim (January 9), which will all be rescheduled for later in the year, as well as two performances of "La traviata" at the Royal Opera House in London (January 17 and 20). Ms. Netrebko is sorry to disappoint her fans and looks forward to returning to the stage later in January once she has fully recovered from the operation.

    Poor thing.


    I have tickets for her Manon in April, I hope she is fully recovered by then.

    Alma, I'm sure she'll need a good physician to take care of her after surgery. You could offer her your services . . .

    Or at least a few therapeutic foot rubs.

    Poor thing. With a boo-boo. I'd gladly comfort her.

    Very interesting interview, thanks Nat.

    One of the oldest Opera houses in Europe, Barcelona's Liceu, will most probably close two months during the current season, suspending the scheduled performances and freezing all jobs during the closing period, due to financial issues.

    My first thought: "what's with this metalhead? I thought it's thread about operatic news?"
