American tenor Charles Castronovo has been hospitalized after contracting COVID-19.
Castronovo’s wife, soprano Ekaterina Siurina posted on social media that Castronovo has been sick for over two and a half weeks.
“Charlie has been in the hospital in Vienna with coronavirus for a week now, but he’s getting better, we can’t put into words our experiences, but I’m glad he’s under constant medical supervision and on the mend! Previously, there was no way to inform everyone – it has been going on for 2,5 weeks and I want to take this opportunity to say – God bless everyone! Me and the kids are healthy and looking forward to a speedy recovery for Charlie! Take care of yourselves!,” wrote Siurina on her Facebook account.
Charles Castronovo is one of the leading tenors in the world. He has performed on all major operatic stages, including the Metropolitan Opera House, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Wiener Staatsoper, Opéra National de Paris, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Staatsoper unter der Linden, Bayerische Staatsoper, and LA Opera, among others.
