Opera Theatre of Saint Louis Cancels Second Half of ‘Orfeo and Euridice’

Opera Theatre of Saint Louis’s performance of “Orfeo and Euridice” on Sunday did not conclude on Sunday evening after a patron suffered a heart attack.

Per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the unnamed patron suffered the heart attack just before the end of intermission. Before ambulances arrived he was helped by doctors in the audiences. Eventually, he died in the ambulance.

The performance had been delayed throughout the incident and ultimately, the second half was canceled. OTSL General Manager Timothy O’Leary announced that the company would provide replacement tickets for a later date. “Orfeo and Euridice” has performances remaining on June 13, 15, 17, 21, and 23.

Additionally, the company is showcasing performances of “An American Soldier,” “Regina” and “La Traviata.”
