By Francisco Salazar

Anita Rachvelishvili has released a statement regarding her recent cancelations and her recent health issues.

The mezzo took to social media and said, “My dearest friends! It’s been a long time since my last post or any information that came directly from me! I was very sick! I’ve had very very difficult last couple of years! My health was getting worse and I tried to stay strong and keep going, for my family, for our Little angel, for Opera and for love that I have for what I do. I tried hard but as you know we can not force our health. I kept going till I could but with little success and lots of suffering!”

She added, “I had to stop at the beginning of June and take care of myself! I am so sorry! It was a very difficult decision! I feel better and I am being treated by the best team of doctors and I will be back very soon! I will tell you my story as soon as possible and we will talk a lot about all the issues that a woman can have doing what we do! Meanwhile, I want to say thank you to my amazing Husband, who is always there for me. To my friends and family who were there for me, to all the theaters, casting directors and intendants who supported me in a very difficult period and the most importantly, a huge thank you to my amazing manager Alan Green, he was there for me for every second and for every difficulty that I’ve encountered. I am so grateful for having amazing people in my life and I feel lucky and blessed! Wish you all health and happiness and looking forward to seeing you soon on stage.”

Rachvekishvili recently canceled performances at the Bayerische Staatsoper, Arena di Verona, and Festival Aix-En-Provence. The mezzo-soprano is still listed at the Teatro Colon for performances of “Il Trovatore” in August.
