London may be plastered in snow, but the shows go on - all of them. Christian Gerhaher got caught up in the travel chaos as he returned to Covent Garden from his Munich home, forcing him to miss most of yesterday's Tannhäuser matinee. While his cover sang from the wings and a stage director walked the role, Gerhaher sat on a snow-bound Eurostar train. Luckily for an audience primed by universally ecstatic reviews, he reached the Royal Opera House in time for the third act.
