Anna Netrebko returns to the Wiener Staatsoper for Manon without Jonas Kaufmann

Anna Netrebko returns to the Wiener Staatsoper this sunday 6. April 2008 for a revival of Massenet's Manon. There will be only 4 performances, on 6., 9., 12. and 15. April. Jonas Kaufmann, which was initially scheduled to sing Le Chevalier des Grieux, has been replaced, at least in the first three performances, by Massimo Giordano. There is no name for this role at the WSO web site for the last performance. In any case, none of these performances appear on the schedule section of the Jonas Kaufmann official web site. Additional information can be found at the Jonas Kaufmann unofficial web site.

  1. Jonas Kaufmann is injured and can't sing any of the performances. So far they didn't find a tenor for the performance on the 15th.

  2. Thanks for the informnation. I read something about on Marion's web devoted to Kaufmann and this is more or less what I understood (it was in german, and google translation was just so so)
