Mezzo-soprano María José Montiel had canceled upcoming engagements with the Spanish National Orchestra. 

According to the organization, Montiel was forced to cancel concerts on Jan. 19 and 20 due to health issues. She was expected to perform “Shéhérazade.” As a result, the concerts were modified to include orchestral works from Prokofiev and Manuel de Falla.

Montiel is still scheduled to perform on Jan. 31, 2018, at the Naples Opera alongside Ramón Tebar in a recital. The concert will include French, Spanish, and Brazilian songs as well as beloved operatic arias. She is also scheduled for “Don Carlo” at the Opera de Tenerife and concerts in Madrid and Valencia. Montiel also performs Respighi’s “Il Tramonto” at the Escorial and Verdi’s Requiem at the Palau de les Arts alongside Davinia Rodriguez and Giacomo Prestia. Montiel is recognized as one of the premiere Carmen interpreters of her generation.
