Domingo cancels appearance in FGO “Luisa” performance

via Lawrence Johnson at South Florida Classical Review

Placido Domingo canceled his appearance in Tuesday night’s Florida Grand Opera gala performance of Luisa Fernanda.

In a press release sent out Tuesday two hours before the curtain, Florida Grand Opera stated that “due to a serious infection that has disabled his vocal chords,” the Spanish tenor has withdrawn from tonight’s highly publicized gala performance of Luisa Fernanda.

The release states that the 70-year-old Spanish tenor has “graciously offered to be on the podium” and conduct Tuesday’s performance as well as attend the post-performance gala as scheduled.

In a pre-performance curtain speech at the Ziff Ballet Opera House, Domingo addressed the audience and promised to return at a future date to fulfill his Miami commitment.
