Currentzis abandons Tristan

While the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden was waiting for the performances of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde (17-20 November 2022) conducted by Teodor Currentzis with his MusicAeterna orchestra, the conductor announced that some singers were no longer fully available for the solo parts. So no more Wagner, but an alternative of comparable value has been found with Verdi’s Messa da Requiem, which will be performed by Zarina Abaeva, Eve-Maud Hubeaux, Matthias Goerne and a tenor whose name has not yet been announced. Wagnerians allergic to Verdi will be able to convert their tickets into vouchers or a donation, refunds remain also possible.
