Maestro Slatkin keeps writing about Traviata. Conducting it might be history...

.
It's just a rumor, but when La Cieca "hears" something, it's true in most of the cases. As it was Angela not showing up at the rehearsal last Wednesday. It was also a rumor, but Leonard Slatkin confirmed it in the part II of his "Days and nights at the opera" saying as introduction to March 24th: Oh-oh! Guess who did not come to the rehearsal today?.
.
Maybe Marco Armiliato is around... We'll see soon.

  1. Yes, there were problems off and on throughout the evening, but the fact that Angela was singing made it easier to get past them, for me anyway. And the audience seemed not to care too much from what I could tell, though the lady next to me did make a comment after the second act that Slatkin should not be conductiong this opera!

  2. Angela didn't show up to some rehearsals.

  3. From a reliable source: the truth is that she was "too tired" to show up for an important rehearsal.
