Gianandrea Noseda Cancels Torino ‘Macbeth’ Due to Herniated Disc

By David Salazar

Maestro Gianandrea Noseda has canceled performances at the Teatro Regio Torino due to a herniated disc that he recently suffered.

He was conducting Verdi’s “Macbeth,” which he will, unfortunately, hand over to conductor Giulio Laguzzi, who was recommended by Noseda to finish out the run.

“Maestro Noseda suffers from low back sciatalgica syndrome of lumbar disc herniation that occurred yesterday morning. Professor Michele Naddeo, who visited him this morning, recommended surgical treatment which Gianandrea Noseda will undergo tomorrow at the Clinic Fornaca of Turin,” said a press release by the theater regarding the situation. “Wishing Maestro Noseda a speedy recovery. We will give you updates in the coming days.”

The run of Macbeth started on June 21, 2017, and runs through July 2. Anna Pirozzi and Oksana Dyka are sharing the role of Lady Macbeth while Dalibor Jenis and Gabriele Viviani are taking on the title role.

Noseda is scheduled to take on “Macbeth” and “La Bohème” later this summer in Edinburgh before heading to Gstaad for “Aida.” He will return to Torino in the fall for more “Aida” and is set for “Macbeth” in Paris. His status, however, puts many of these engagements in limbo as to his participation.
