I do hope not, but after unconfirmed (but almost certainly true) reports that he's pulled out of Covent Garden's Werther next year (to be replaced by man-of-the-moment Vittorio Grigolo, some say) comes some late news from Munich.
He's withdrawn from a short run of L'Elisir d'amore which starts tonight - due to 'infection'. I do hope it's just a cold, but something tells me that a rollercoaster career may have finally reached the end of its ride.
I am very sorry to have to let you know that I have been suffering from severe stomach problems and am now under doctor's orders to rest until further notice.
I am sad to have to cancel the performances of "L'elisir d'amore" in Munich on July 21 and 24 but am hopeful that I will recover in time for the performance on July 27.
