“We hear that Anna’s fiancé, the Azeri tenor Yusif Eyvazov, has stayed behind to understudy Joan Kaufmann in the role of Des Grieux.” [Slipped Disc]
Joan Kaufmann looks like she might be related to Joan Crawford.
They also got a second cover in from what I heard but don’t know who it is but do know that Jonas is still sick apparently. But officially the BSO is saying ‘ihm geht es gut’. Na ja, schauen wir mal.
I expect JK to make a miraculous recovery with the arrival of his BFF Kristine Opolais. Or at least he is her BFF.
So which is it Slipped Disc, fiance or hubby?
My bigger concern is that Kaufmann seems to get sick way too often. Is he frail or what?
I can just picture a substitute in March for his Don Jose.
Say it ain’t so!!
Credit where credit is due! Lebrecht’s line and Cieca’s photoshopping combine nicely.
Nmoran’s attontien tp ditail id sexond tp nine.
This is a veiled hint at what the production entails.
Des Grieux can’t leave Manon because she’s the only woman who indulges, even rejoices in, his secret cross-dressing. Now that’s Regie. Fire Neuenfels, hire Lascivious Lebrecht.
Now, now, Lebrecht is just expressing his sympathies for Catalan separatism by transforming Kaufmann’s first name into Catalan.
