One furtive tenor

SHOWBIZ Operastar 144450“Mexikanische Startenor” Rolando Villazón has canceled tomorrow night’s performance of L’elisir d’amore at the Munich Opera Festival due to an “acute infection.”  Speaking of “a cute,” substituting in the role of Nemorino will be puppylicious Pavol Breslik. [via]

    Rolando did sing at the third schedulded performance in Munich. Well, he tried to but barely made it through the first act. Voice was completely gone 20 minutes after the curtain rose. After the intermisson he came on stage with managing director Bachler and said he will go on just for his fans and earned a huge ovation…
