From November on, Anna Netrebko was supposed to enchant her fans in Giuseppe Verdi’s “Nabucco” on the stage of the Vienna State Opera. But now their appearances have been canceled. How is the opera star?
Concern about Anna Netrebko: “I suffer from crippling pain”
In an interview with the newspaper “Kurier”, Anna Netrebko explains why she cannot perform. “I have had debilitating shoulder pain for many months and my doctor advised me to urgently undergo surgery and then immediately begin physical rehabilitation to resolve the problem.”
The opera diva is sad that she has to resign from her role in “Nabucco”. “I am sorry to miss my dear Viennese audience this time, and I look forward to performing for you again very soon.” It is not yet known who will take her place.
Anna Netrebko mourns her father
There are difficult weeks behind Anna Netrebko. In early September, just a few days before her 50th birthday, her beloved father died. In October he would have been 87 years old. To mark the occasion, the opera diva posted an emotional video.
“Now you only come to me in my dreams, smiling, beaming and happy,” she writes. “Today you would be 87.”
