Sir Bryn Terfel Cancels Carnegie Hall Recital

By Francisco Salazar

Sir Bryn Terfel has canceled his recital at Carnegie Hall on Feb. 9, 2020.

Carnegie Hall announced that “Sir Bryn Terfel must regretfully cancel this performance due to a severe foot injury that requires surgery, rendering him unable to travel. Concertgoers should retain their tickets, pending a possible updated artist and program for this date. Ticket holders with questions may contact CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800.”

Terfel was expected to perform alongside Natalia Katyukova in a program of songs by Ireland, Brahms, Schumann, Vaughn Williams and Quilter.

The bass-baritone already canceled his recital at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, which was set for Feb. 2.

On Jan. 27, Terfel fell and fractured his ankle while working on a production for “The Flying Dutchman” in Bilbao. He will need surgery to help in his recovery.

He is still scheduled to return to the Metropolitan Opera for a production of “The Flying Dutchman,” which opens on March 2, 2020.
