Carlos Álvarez Cancels Performances in Madrid & Vienna

By Francisco Salazar

Carlos Álvarez has announced the cancelation of numerous performances at the Teatro Real, Teatro de la Zarzuela, and Wiener Staatsoper due to illness.

At the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid, the Spanish baritone will be replaced by Juan Jesús Rodríguez, who will perform the Christmas Concert on Dec. 30 alongside soprano Rocío Ignacio and conductor Guillermo García Calvo.

The Teatro Real, however, has suspended the concert at the Plaza de Oriente, which Álvarez was set to perform alongside tenor Gregory Kunde. The theater has announced that it will give ticket holders refunds.

Finally, the Wiener Staatsoper has announced that Álvarez, who set to sing the role of Carlo Gérard in “Andrea Chénier” will be replaced by George Petean. The production is set to star Jonas Kaufmann and Maria Agresta and is set to open Nov. 30, 2022.
