Diana Damrau Cancels Final Two Performances In Munich

Diana Damrau has canceled the final two performances of “Lucia di Lammermoor” at the Bayerische Staatsoper.

The company announced via Twitter that Damrau would not be able to sing the final two performances on Dec. 12 and 15 due to illness. As a result, Olga Pudova will take over the run. 

Pudova has been acclaimed as one of the promising coloratura sopranos of her generations. She recently sang Olympia in “Les Contes d’Hoffmann” at the Bayerische Staatsoper and also made her US opera debut as Königin der Nacht with Opera Philadelphia and has sung the role at the Opéra Comique, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and on tour in Japan with the Komische Oper Berlin. Other highlights include “Die Zauberflöte” at Wiener Staatsoper (new production), Bayerische Staatsoper, Opera de Paris, Edinburgh Festival, La Fenice, Gran Teatro del Liceu, Opernhaus Mannheim, Teatro Regio di Torino, Festival d’Aix en Provence, Komische Oper Berlin, Opera de Nice, Opera de Bordeaux and at the Vlaamse Opera in Ghent and Antwerp; as well as the Mariinsky Theatre.

Damrau canceled the first performance of the run and was replaced by Operalia winner Adela Zaharia. Damrau is now scheduled to return to the stage in January and February for a European tour. She makes her role debut in the title role of “Maria Stuarda” in April at the Zürich Opera.
